MACEDONIA REQUESTS EXTRADITION OF ALILI
Macedonian authorities formally requested the UN Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) extradite Zaim Alili in connection with Vaksince shooting that left one police officer dead and other two injured.
Ministry of Justice said it has submitted a formal extradition request to UNMIK on Wednesday. The request contains the necessary documents in accordance with provisions of Macedonia's criminal law.
Legal proceedings against Zaim Alili are underway in Kumanovo District Court in connection with felonies committed beforehand. Alili has been charged with murder, assault on police officer, and violence.
Fatmir Alili, the commander of police station in Matejce, was killed and two police officers Jance Kitanov and Slagjan Kostovski were severely injured when a group of gunmen led by Alili opened fire on police vehicle last Monday just outside Kumanovo's village of Vaksince.
On Wednesday, Interior Ministry filed charges against Xheladin Hiseni of the village of Lojane and Zaim's brother Skender Alili, who probably died in the shooting. Nonetheless, the authorities have no official information on his death.
