An officer of Kosovo Security Forces has been arrested in the United States of America, where he had gone for training, on charges of rape of a young girl.

The arrested person is Ismail Sekiraqa, 23 years old, member of the Kosovo Security Force. He was arrested in the state of Missouri. Meanwhile, the court demanded 150 thousand USD for him to be released on bail.

The US media said that the arrested man could be convicted from two to seven years in prison if he’s found guilty on the charges addressed against him for “statutory rape involving a 14-year-old Pulaski County girl”.

In Kosovo, the ministry of Security Forces suspended Sekiraqa, pending more detailed information on his arrest.

The member of FSK was in the USA in a training for chemical protection, nuclear and biological officer in a four month course in Fort Leonard Wood.

According to the court, Sekiraqa, whom you can see on the photo, had conducted on 8 and 9 June sexual relations with a minor girl in Missouri.

The file against him also contains the affidavit of the girl and one of her relatives, who say that the young girl had fallen in love with Sekiraqa and didn’t want to collaborate with the authorities. /balkaneu.com/
