The Justice Ministry is prepared to re-open the case of deported Kosovan asylum seeker Remzi Baftijari after it was revealed that the anti-depressive medicine the 15-year-old was prescribed in Denmark is unavailable in Kosovo.

Baftijari, who had lived in a Danish asylum camp since he was three, was deported two months ago after a request to be permitted to stay based on his psychological condition was rejected on the grounds that he could obtain the medication in Kosovo.

An investigation later revealed that the medication is not available legally there.
