MPs staged a dramatic intervention to try to stop the new special court which will try former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters, while courts in Pristina acquitted two prominent politicians and ex-guerrilla commanders.

As the year drew to a close in Pristina, a group of MPs made a controversial attempt on the night of December 22 to scrap the law that established the new Kosovo Specialist Chambers, as the new Hague-based court prepares to issue its first indictments of former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters for wartime and post-war crimes.
Forty-three MPs out of a total of 120 signed a demand for an extraordinary parliamentary session to revoke the Kosovo law that allows the Specialist Chambers to operate.

The move came after a protest by KLA veterans, who accused the court of being biased.
