On June 23, 2009, former Kosovo Prime Minister Agim Ceku was arrested in Bulgaria for alleged war crimes against the Kosovan non-Albanian population. Ceku was the military commander of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) during the Kosovo War and was charged with genocide in relation to 669 Serbs and 18 others. Ceku dismissed the charges as being politically motivated. Bulgarian authorities released him from custody and later dropped the charges.
