The three ongoing prosecutions under the Espionage Act of individuals who allegedly „leaked“ classified information to the press are slowly moving forward.

Prosecutors will present their opening brief to an appeals court in the case of Jeffrey A. Sterling, a former CIA officer who is accused of leaking classified information to author James Risen, on January 13, 2012, according to a proposed briefing schedule that was filed yesterday.

The prosecution of Sterling has been suspended in lower court while the government appeals several court rulings that it considers unfavorable.

Specifically, the government wants to overturn the court’s finding that Mr. Risen is protected by a „reporter’s privilege“ and cannot be compelled to identify his source.  Prosecutors also want to reverse what they described as an order relating to the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA) that the identity of certain government witnesses must be disclosed to the defendant and the jury.  Finally, they are appealing an order that eliminated two potential government witnesses because prosecutors failed to disclose adverse information about the witnesses in a timely manner, a November 9 docketing statement said.

Interestingly, defense attorneys deny that the second issue involving disclosure of witness identities is a CIPA issue that can be appealed at this stage.  They point out that „No order has been entered by the District Court allowing the defendant, over the Government’s objection, to disclose any classified information.  No sanctions have been imposed upon the Government for refusing to allow for the disclosure of any classified information by the defendant in any manner.“  Therefore, „Mr. Sterling does not agree that this appeal raises any issues appealable under CIPA.“

It was also announced yesterday that the case of Army Private Bradley Manning, the suspected WikiLeaks source, will proceed to what is called an Article 32 hearing on December 16 at Fort Meade, Maryland.

„The primary purpose of the Article 32 hearing is to evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of the government’s case as well as to provide the defense with an opportunity to obtain pretrial discovery,“ according to Private Manning’s attorney, David E. Coombs. „The defense is entitled to call witnesses during the hearing and to also cross examine the government’s witnesses.“

The other ongoing leak prosecution under the Espionage Act is that of former State Department contractor Stephen Kim, who is accused of leaking classified information to Fox News reporter James Rosen.  The prosecution of Mr. Kim is still in an early stage of pre-trial discovery, according to a November 15 status report.

The Kosovo Security Force has a new commander after Sylejman Selimi handed over to Kadri Kastrati.

Fatmir Aliu


Major General Kadri Kastrati assumed command of the KSF in Pristina from Lieutenant General Sylejman Selimi.

In a solemn handover on Tuesday at the “Adem Jashari” military compound, the new commander of the civilian controlled security force inspected the troops.

Kosovo’s President, Atifete Jahjaga, the supreme commander of the KSF, said the force was setting a good standard of international cooperation.

“The Kosovo Security Force is becoming an important mechanism of cooperation with international security and defence structures, in the interest of our homeland, peace and stability in the region,” Jahjaga said.

The Kosovo Security Force is a lightly armed, uniformed force that is subject to democratic, civilian control. Its mission is to conduct crisis response operations throughout Kosovo and the neighbouring countries.

The new Chief of Staff, Major-General Kadri Kastrati, previously served as director of operations of the force. He was appointed on November 17, by a decree signed by the President.

The KSF’s outgoing commander, Lieutenant-General Sylejman Selimi, was awarded the “Goldel Medal for Freedom” for his services.

After taking off his uniform, Selimi, is expected to join the diplomatic corps and be appointed Kosovo’s next ambassador to Albania.

Soldaten Glück

Teilweise Einseitiger Bericht, der ignoriert die Helsinki Akte und das Völkerrecht ! Der Grundfehler liegt im krmimellen Kosovo Krieg, wo die US und NATO Banden, eine neue Aufgabe suchten und zur Übung einen Krieg inzenierten. siehe später der Irak Krieg. Ursache: niemand kontrolliert die Organisationen, NGO’s noch gibt es eine Koordination, von irgendwas. Die angeblichen Experten des Westens sind und waren schon vor 10 Jahren lächerlich und die dümmsten und 3. klassigen Leute kamen.
