On November 15, the European Court of Human Rights began hearings in the case of Saramati v. France, Germany and Norway. Between April 2001 and October 2002, Mr. Saramati, a Kosovar of Albanian origin, was detained by orders of UNMIK and KFOR officers who were of French, German or Norwegian nationality. He was convicted of attempted murder but his conviction was later quashed by the Supreme Court of Kosovo and a re-trial was ordered. Mr. Saramati claims that France, Germany and Norway violated several provisions of the European Convention of Human Rights related to life and security on one hand and to fair trial on the other.
