Kosovo: 1 month detention for suspected drug boss
The Associated Press
Naser Kelmendi is suspected of directing a criminal network stretching from Turkey into Western Europe.
The EULEX mission said Thursday that Kelmendi is being investigated for "the same offences he has been accused of in Bosnia." Authorities in Bosnia want Kelmendi as part of an investigation into criminals linked to at least six murders, illegal money transfers and drug trafficking.
Kosovo, however, cannot extradite Kelmendi to face charges in Bosnia because Bosnia does not recognize Kosovo's 2008 secession from Serbia.
