Former Prime Minister of Kosovo, Ramush Haradinaj, was arrested in France on Wednesday (Jan. 04) in response to an global arrest warrant for war crimes filed by Serbia. Serbia, however, still considers Kosovo a province, but does recognize the elected government's right to administer the territory.
The 48-year-old former leader of the KLA ("Kosovo Liberation Army") and former Kosovo prime minister traveled with a diplomatic passport when he was stopped at the airport in the eastern French town of Basel-Mulhous.
Serbian Office for War Crimes chief prosecutor Milan Petrovic told public broadcaster Radio Televizija Srbije (RTS) late on Wednesday that the Serbian judicial authorities can do nothing more in regard to Haradinaj's extradition because an extradition is only possible with the consent of the accused person.
Haradinaj was cleared of charges he tortured and killed Serbs and ethnic Albanians at the KLA-run detention center in Jablanica in 1998.
Haradinaj was cleared of war crimes charges in two lengthy trials by a United Nations war crimes tribunal.
