Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj has surprisingly resigned after being requested to face a special war crimes tribunal in The Hague. This will have far-reaching political consequences, says Vilma Filaj-Ballvora.

Twenty years after the end of the Kosovo War, many wounds have yet to heal. To this day, many of those who perpetrated war crimes have escaped justice. And reconciliation between Serbia and Kosovo seems a remote prospect.

Nevertheless, there is some good news. Kosovo’s parliament has agreed to the creation of a special tribunal to investigate the crimes of Kosovo Albanians during the war. The tribunal, which is based in The Hague, has already collected evidence and begun to question witnesses.

Now, the court has made headlines by requesting to question none other than Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, a former officer and leader of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). His court hearing is set for next week.
