Prishtina [Pristina], 19 April: The former [Kosovo] prime minister, Ramush Haradinaj, left for The Hague this afternoon.

Ramush Haradinaj resigned on 8 March and left immediately to The Hague after the tribunal brought an indictment against him.

He pleaded not guilty on 37 counts of the indictment against him.

Haradinaj was commander of the Kosova [Kosovo] Liberation Army for the Dukagjin Zone during the wartime.
