KSC pre-trial judge extends Thaci’s detention

The pre-trial judge of the Kosovo Specialist Chambers, Nicolas Guillou, issued a decision for the continued detention of former Kosovo President Hashim Thaci, charged with war crimes.

The judge said that there are risks that if less restrictive measures are applied, Thaci “will obstruct the progress of SC proceedings or commit further crimes.”

The judge also ruled that the time Thaci has spent in pre-trial detention, which has exceeded one year, is not unreasonable.
