BELGRADE, 05. JAN. 2016 – Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic has commented on the arrest of Ramush Haradinaj in France to say it is “good for justice to be above politics” and stressed that Belgrade will seek Haradinaj extradition from French authorities. Vucic said that the Serbian prosecution has numerous pieces of evidence and “incriminating things” against Haradinaj, former Kosovo Albanian paramilitary UCK commander, and that he wished that France, “as a serious country with the rule of law,” would not act in line with political positions, but rather in line with justice.”That would then raise the question of how Serbia would react in a reciprocal situation,” he said. When a B92 media reporter asked whether Serbia would officially seek Haradinaj’s extradition, the prime minister responded: “You bet it will.” “We have him on so many (criminal) acts that they can’t be counted. Nobody has the right to undermine the decisions of an independent prosecution,” said Vucic. Former Hague indictee and leader of the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo Ramush Haradinaj has been arrested in France on a Serbian warrant. Albanian language media reported that Haradinaj had been detained based on an international warrant issued by Serbia. The 48-year-old war crimes accused 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-Mulhouse. Serbia has filed 108 criminal complaints against him, on suspicion that he committed grave crimes, including terrorism and murder of civilians in Kosovo in 1998 and 1999. Haradinaj was indicted for war crimes and put on trial by the Hague Tribinal but was acquitted of all charges in 2012.
