Acting Specialist Prosecutor Alex Whiting welcomed today’s judgement in the appeal of Hysni Gucati and Nasim Haradinaj, and made clear that the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office would continue to prosecute all cases of witness intimidation, retaliation against witnesses and obstruction of justice.
“I welcome today’s judgement from the Specialist Chambers Appeals Panel, which reinforces the rule of law in Kosovo and sends a clear message to anyone involved in witness intimidation, retaliation against witnesses and obstruction of justice,” the Acting Specialist Prosecutor said.
“The SPO takes these crimes extremely seriously and will continue to investigate and to prosecute anyone and everyone involved in every instance.
“This case has been about the conditions required for the fair administration of justice and what is needed to make the rule of law a reality,” Mr Whiting continued. “Witnesses must be able to testify without fear of retaliation or retribution.”
