ristina. Former Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj has arrived to Pristina, the Kosovo media reported. The U.N. war crimes tribunal decided to temporarily release him so he can attend the funeral of a brother who was shot dead. Haradinaj, who resigned as Prime Minister in March to face charges at The Hague Tribunal, was granted the release on condition he did not try to contact potential prosecution witnesses or talk to the media, the court said in a statement.
Haradinaj's brother Enver, a student, was killed on Friday in what a source in NATO-led peacekeeping forces said was an apparent clan dispute. Three of Haradinaj's brothers have died violently since 1997.
