Rugova and Daci urge ICTY to release Haradinaj

Rugova and Daci write to the ICTY
Express reports that Kosovo President Ibrahim Rugova and Parliamentary Speaker Nexhat Daci have sent a letter to the chief of the Hague Tribunal, Theodor Meron. They offer guarantees for the release of former Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj to defend himself in freedom.

The letter was sent through Haradinaj’s defense coordinator, Michael O’Riley.

Meanwhile, the government of Kosovo has created a Commission for the Defense of Hamush Haradinaj. The commission will be headed by Haradinaj himself, but it will be coordinated by Michael O’Reilly. Members of the commission include government ministers, and other important personalities, including high profile lawyers and professor of the University of Prishtina. The commission will start working immediately by organizing campaigns for collecting funds.
