UN court orders retrial for former Kosovo PM

The Yugoslav war crimes tribunal has ordered a retrial for former Kosovo PM Ramush Haradinaj, two years after he was acquitted of murder, rape and torture charges.



Hague: The Yugoslav war crimes tribunal
has ordered a retrial for former Kosovo PM Ramush Haradinaj,
two years after he was acquitted of murder, rape and torture
charges.

Tribunal President Patrick Robinson says the original
trial of Haradinaj and two other former commanders in the
Kosovo Liberation Army was marred by witness intimidation.
Robinson said today the trial chamber "failed to
appreciate the gravity" of the intimidation.

Judges originally threw out charges against Haradinaj for
lack of evidence.
Haradinaj showed no emotion when Robinson ordered the
retrial.

Haradinaj had been charged along with Idriz Balaj and
Lahi Brahimaj with abusing Serbs or their supporters in 1998
as Kosovo battled for independence from Serbia.
