The imprisonment of the two Kosovo war veterans Hysni Gucati and Nasim Haradinaj, by the Specialist Chambers, was an unfair decision, says analyst Baton Haxhiu.

Haxhiu said he wasn’t surprised by the court’s ruling after learning that Charles Smith was in the panel.

“The prosecutors come from families of Serbian and Croatian descent. Charles Smith was one of the judges who wanted to convict Fatmir Limaj. I knew they couldn’t escape without being punished”, Haxhiu.

On the other hand, Haxhiu added that the Court of Appeals will change the length of the prison sentence.

Gucati and Haradinaj were convicted after releasing classified files from the Specialist Chambers, but Haxhiu says an investigation should have been launched to learn who leaked the data.

“The files were released by the Court itself. Initially, they must punish their own people, or another scenario would be that they leaked them on purpose”.

According to Haxhiu, the leak of the classified data could be a strategy of the court to reactivate the trial against the former KLA leaders.
