[JURIST] A trial chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia [official website] ruled Monday that former Kosovo prime minister Ramush Haradinaj [BBC profile] would be granted provisional release pending his war crimes trial at The Hague, but immediately stayed the order for 24 hours to allow filing of a proscution appeal under Rule 65 (F) [official text] of the court's Rules of Procedure and Evidence. In making its ruling, the trial chamber cited assurances from the UN Mission in Kosovo [official website], and Haradinaj's voluntary surrender to the tribunal. The Prosecutor's Office had originally objected to Haradinaj's release [JURIST report] in consideration of possible dangers that could pose to victims and witnesses still in Kosovo. Haradinaj is accused of crimes against humanity and violations of the laws of war [official ICTY indictment]. Read the official ICTY press release.
