The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia today sentenced Shefqet Kabashi for contempt of the Tribunal to 2 months of imprisonment.

On 26 August 2011, Kabashi pleaded guilty to charges that he knowingly and willfully interfered with the Tribunal's administration of justice by contumaciously refusing or failing to answer questions as a witness in the case of Ramush Haradinaj and others on two occasions in June and November 2007. The Trial Chamber accepted his plea on 31 August 2011, entering a finding of guilt.

According to the Prosecution, Shefqet Kabashi has been a key witness in the trial and re-trial of Ramush Haradinaj et al. as his testimony relates to the defendants' alleged responsibility for crimes committed at the KLA headquarters and the prison in Jablanica/Jabllanicë. Haradinaj, former KLA Commander and Prime Minister of Kosovo, and his two co-accused Idriz Balaj and Lahi Brahimaj, are being re-tried on six counts of the indictment relating to the torture and murder of prisoners in the KLA-run camp in Jablanica/Jabllanicë. When ordering a partial re-trial of the case in July 2010, the Appeals Chamber found that the Trial Chamber had erred in failing to secure Kabashi's testimony, and that of one other witness, thereby depriving the Prosecution of vital support for its case.
