Kosovo’s Interior Minister Ekrem Mustafa promised that the two killers sentenced for the 2012 Good Friday massacre will eventually be extradited to Macedonia, but only after the required procedures in the Justice Ministry in Kosovo are completed.

Kosovo has harbored the two killers, Alil Demiri and Afrim Islailovic for years, using legal procedures to protract the extradition. They are two of the three direct perpetrators of the massacre of four Macedonian boys and one man, which was carried out north of Skopje on the eve of Good Friday 2012.

The killers and their accomplices were sentenced to life in prison for murders motivated by Islamism, but under pressure from ethnic Albanian parties those who were arrested in Macedonia were released shortly after Zoran Zaev’s SDSM party took over the Government.
