The Basic Court in Pristina sentenced Kosovo Serb Nenad Orlovic to 15 months in prison and a fine of 12,000 euros, finding him guilty of last year's attack on KFOR troops in Zvecan, Kosovo.

The president of the panel of judges, Valbona Musliu-Selimaj, said the court ruling will come into effect immediately, as it was preceded by a plea agreement.

Orlovic was convicted for participating in a crowd committing criminal offenses, hooliganism, and attacking a public official, Beta reported, adding that he has been in custody since June 26 last year.

According to the charges, in the attack on KFOR troops Orlovic used “dangerous weapons, improvised explosive devices and firearms.”

The Kosovo Special Prosecution Office indictment against Orlovic pertains to incidents of May 29 last year, when some 90 KFOR members were injured in the Serb-majority northern municipality of Zvecan.
