Kosovo’s Ministry of Justice and Islamic Community have signed an agreement on engaging imams to help radicalised Muslims who have been arrested or jailed for terrorism.

Kosovo Justice Minister Abelard Tahiri on Friday signed a deal with the body representing the country’s Muslim clerics, the BIK, on deradicalising prisoners charged or convicted of terrorism.

“We already have a proposal from the Islamic Community and we expect they will help in deradicalisation of those who have returned from the wars in Syria and Iraq,” Tahiri said.

Before accrediting clerics for the program, imams will have to undergo a vetting procedure led by the Kosovo Intelligence Agency, AKI.
