“A Kosovo court has found four opposition lawmakers guilty of repeatedly disrupting parliament by using tear gas.

The four members of the left-wing Self-Determination Party — Albin Kurti, Donika Kadaj Bujupi, Albulena Haxhiu and Faton Topalli — were sentenced Wednesday to up to 18 months in prison. They won’t be jailed, however, if they do not commit the same crime during a two-year probation period.

The verdict said in four parliamentary sessions the defendants had used “tear gas without authorization” to block lawmakers from working.” (Washington Post)
