KWN applauds the verdict of the Basic Court in Ferizaj, sentencing Dardan Krivaqa to life imprisonment for the murder of Marigona Osmani.

However, KWN believes that the 15-year prison sentence imposed on Arbër Sejdiu is insufficient given the gravity of the offense and its consequences. KWN contends that, in accordance with the Criminal Code of the Republic of Kosovo, a more appropriate sentence would have been 25 years of imprisonment.

KWN will review the decision of acquittal in the rape indictment and will closely monitor the case in subsequent proceedings to ensure that the verdict of the Basic Court against Dardan Krivaqa remains unchanged.
