Isak Musliu

Isak Musliu (born 31 October 1970)[1] was charged by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia[2] with a series of beatings and murders in the UÇK Lapušnik prison camp against Serbian civilians and suspected Albanians opposed to the UÇK between May and July 1998 during the Kosovo War.

He was known as “Qerqiz” during the Yugoslav wars. The most serious incident listed in the indictment is said to have occurred on July 26 that year, when the facility was abandoned in the face of a Serb Army advance. Prosecutors claimed that Haradin Bala and another guard led some 20 prisoners up into nearby mountains, where some were released and the rest were lined up and shot, allegedly on Fatmir Limaj's orders. On 30 November 2005, Musliu was acquitted on all charges. He was released from custody the following day. His acquittal was confirmed on appeal.[3][4]
