A while back I saw a tweet about a basketball player in Europe who was facing manslaughter charges. I'm not sure why this popped into my head two years later but one night I decided to see if I could track him down. Turns out Jamaican national Kimani Ffriend had been languishing in a Serbian prison for months, awaiting his trial. So I headed to Belgrade to find out more.
And of course, there is much more to the story than simply a basketball player commiting a possible crime. His victim was engaged to a well-known pop star. Also, the facts in the case aren't clear, and then there's Serbia. If there ever was a place where a crime is never just a crime, it's Serbia.
