Kosovo's prosecutors on Wednesday brought terror charges against a local man who had allegedly joined the Islamic State group in Syria and was recently repatriated.
A statement from the prosecutor's office said the suspect only identified as S. Q. allegedly joined IS fighters in the Syrian city of Raqqa, after entering through Turkey. He allegedly received training in Syria and took an active part in fighting.
He was handed over to Kurdish forces and was finally repatriated to Kosovo in July this year.
If convicted, the defendant faces up to 10 years in jail.
