Kosovan Court Rules To Extradite Sadiki to Slovakia

Albanian drug boss Badi Sadiki could be returning to Slovakia to face the 22-yr prison sentence handed down to him for heroin smuggling, as the court of first instance in Kosovo has ruled to accept the extradition request of Slovakia.

Slovakia made its request via EULEX, which is the EU mission for integration and development of Kosovo as Slovakia does not recognise Kosovo. The case is far from over, however, as SITA newswire reports that it will now go to the Supreme Court in Kosovo with the final endorsement to come from the Kosovan justice minister.

A separate court will decide tomorrow in separate proceedings whether or not to keep Sadiki in custody, while the Supreme Court won’t preside over the case until at least Wednesday.

Sadiki was caught by Interpol in October after ‘slipping’ Slovak authorities and going on the run. He was on trial together with three others on charges of producing and trading narcotics, and for smuggling 120 kg of heroin from Turkey to Slovakia. The other two men were given sentences of 15 years each after pleading guilty. An appeal was made against Sadiki’s 22-year sentence.

    I hope Kosovo uses this matter to demonstrate that they respect and uphold the law of their fellow states and that Slovakia re-thinks its childish stance regarding recognition.

    So lots of room for `slippage` in extradition request of Slowvakia then ?

    • Will be interesting to see if this crook is extradited to Slovakia, & will he do jail, or will it be another legal whitewash, with his friends in the legal profession whipping up the usual snow storm. During which someone leaves the cell door open, and he disappears faster than a rat up a drainpipe. Only to re-appear sunning himself on a Belize beachfront…. Uvidime
