to address threats to integrity of proceedings

The Specialist Prosecutor’s Office (SPO) sought a series of measures restricting the contacts and communications of three accused in the Specialist Chambers Detention Centre – Hashim Thaçi, Kadri Veseli and Rexhep Selimi. Certain of those measures have been granted by the Trial Panel.

The SPO took this step to address attempts to interfere with witnesses and obstruct their testimony, and further threats to the integrity of the proceedings in the Thaçi et al. case.

SPO obstruction-of-justice investigations show that the three accused used their non-privileged visits to unlawfully disseminate confidential information and, in Mr Thaçi’s case, to repeatedly instruct visitors to seek to manipulate witness testimony.

The SPO takes obstruction of justice extremely seriously and will continue to investigate and to prosecute anyone and everyone involved in every instance, including those who intimidate or interfere with witnesses or provide financial or other support to such criminal offences.
