Ramush Haradinaj made a successful transition from Kosovo Liberation Army guerrilla commander to prime minister – but now prosecutors in The Hague have interrupted his political career for a third time.

In an unexpected turn of events, Kosovo’s Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj held an extraordinary press conference on Friday to announce that he was resigning because he could not be premier at the same time as being a war crimes suspect.

“The honour of the role of prime minister and the state should be preserved and I will never humiliate it. I am going to The Hague as Ramush Haradinaj,” he said after being invited for questioning by the Hague-based Specialist Prosecutor’s Office, which is tasked with probing crimes allegedly committed by Kosovo Liberation Army members from the beginning of 1998 to the end of 1999.
