No valid evidence against Flora Brovina

The Humanitarian Law Center considers that the evidence presented at the trial of Dr Flora Brovini at the District Court in Nis is far from conclusive. Dr Brovini, chair of the League of Albanian Women in Kosovo, is charged with conspiracy for the purpose of hostile activity and terrorism.

The prosecution's case against Dr Brovini is based exclusively on a receipt for a quantity of knitting wool, medicines and medial supplies, and a photograph showing Dr Brovini with a member of the Kosovo Liberation Army that were allegedly found in her possession. At the trial, Dr Brovini denied all counts of the indictment. She said the League of Albanian Women was a legally registered peace organization which provided relief aid to women and children from war-affected areas. She added that the materials found on the League's premises were received from domestic and foreign humanitarian organizations, and that customs documentation exists to prove this.

The trial was adjourned until 25 November when the court is to hear the testimony of a witness, Dr Dobrasin Krdzic, in order to determine the quantity and kind of medical supplies found at the League's offices. Since the defense does not deny this fact, the proceedings are thus being unnecessarily prolonged. As a result, Dr Brovini, who suffers from a serious heart condition, will remain in custody. She was arrested on 10 April this year.
