Former Kosovo[Kosova] PM, Ramush Haradinaj, to be released from Hague

Haradinaj to be released

THE HAGUE -- Tuesday — Hague Tribunal prosecutors will not appeal against this week’s Trial Chamber decision to release former Kosovo prime minister Ramush Haradinaj on bail pending the beginning of his trial.

This effectively means that Haradinaj may be returned without further delay to Kosovo. He is not expected to stand trial before 2007.

The prosecution had earlier sought the right to appeal if bail was granted but announced this morning that no appeal will be lodged.

Initially the Albanians responded to the repression with peaceful and passive resistance. In 1992 the people of Kosova held free elections in which they chose their leadership, expressed their determination for the independence of Kosova in the 1991 referendum, and in the same year the Kosovar parliament declared the independence of Kosova. They formed a parallel government, found means of continuing Albanian-language education outside of occupied premises and providing health care (most Albanian doctors were dismissed from state-owned hospitals by Serb installed authorities). kosovo music
