Fuad Ramici, one of the founders of the party which is based on Islam (LISBA) and imams Bedri Robaj, Mazmull Mazllumi, Eroll Mesini, Leonard Ruli, Sabahudin Selimi and Trim Ademi, will stay under custody for another 30 days.

Meanwhile, the other three imams were placed under house arrest.

This was ruled by the Court of First Instance in Pristina, after the decision taken on September 19 was returned for reexamination.

The arrest of the group of 13 people, the majority of which were Imams of the Islamic Community of Kosovo, was made on September 17, while the court announced the security measure on September 19.

Two of the Imams from Mitrovica, who were arrested with this group, were released on September 25 and another one was released on October 2.

The defense lawyer of Fuad Ramici, Skender Musa, said that he will address to the Court of Appeal, because according to him, the Constitution is being breached.

The defendants are accused of threatening constitutional order in the Republic of Kosovo by encouraging youngsters to join the ranks of ISIS.

Through their sermons, they are also accused of encouraging religious radicalism and divisions based on creed amongst Albanians. /ibna/
