MP Daut Haradinaj, a former Kosovo Liberation Army fighter and brother of the prime minister, said that arrests by the new Hague-based Kosovo Specialist Chambers would cause a major backlash.

Daut Haradinaj, an Alliance for the Future of Kosovo MP who also is the brother of PM Ramush Haradinaj and fought with the Kosovo Liberation Army, told Klan Kosova TV on Wednesday that arrests by the new Specialist Chambers would cause a huge backlash from former KLA members.

Haradinaj warned that “there is no KLA fighter that will not join in” to help stop arrests by the new court, which is expected to try senior Kosovo Liberation figures for alleged crimes committed during and after the war in 1999, including killings, abductions, illegal detentions and sexual violence.

Haradinaj made his statement while commenting on Friday night’s attempt by MPs to revoke the law that allows the new Hague-based Kosovo Specialist Chambers to prosecute former KLA members for wartime and post-war crimes.
