15 Mar Kosovo PM Not Guilty Plea and Other News from the ICTY
As I had already posted, the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Ramush Haradinaj, was indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia for his actions as a commander of the Kosovo Liberation Army. CNN is now running an informative update on Haradinaj’s not-guilty plea on 37 counts and on the case in general.
In other ICTY news, Gojko Jankovic, a Bosnian Serb who was a paramilitary leader south of Sarajevo during the war surrendered to Bosnian Serb authorities and has been transferred to the Hague. The BBC report is here; the ICTY Press release here. The BBC reports:
Both Serbia and Croatia have been under renewed pressure since Kosovo’s former Prime Minister, Ramush Haradinaj, won international praise for his immediate surrender when he was indicted last Tuesday.
Our correspondent says Serbia’s record is poor. More than a dozen indictees are still thought to be on Serbian soil.
