Albanians again in court in Nis

Nis, Monday - The hearing of conspiracy charges against 145 Kosovo Albanians continued today in the Nis Municipal Court. Ten of the 145 residents of the Kosovo town of Djakovica today pleaded not guilty. Ninety of the defendants have so far given statements that they had not left their houses on the day the offences are alleged to have occurred.

One of the lawyers appearing for the Albanian defendants, Mustafa Radonjici, told the court today that he and another lawyer, Teki Bosko, were last night detained by police and their documents checked. Radonjici demanded that they be given protection by the court and that the Ministry of Justice urge police to desist from harassing lawyers defending the Albanians.
