‘Charges should be dropped’, Thaçi demands his freedom in The Hague
The defense team of the former president of Kosovo, Hashim Thaçi has deposited a complaint to The Hague, requesting the dismissal of his indictment, after pointed out that there is “a lack of jurisdiction”.
“None of the accusations have anything to do with the expectations of the European Councils’ report, compiled by senator Dick Marty, for “inhumane treatment of people and illegal traffic of organs”, states the document.
Thaci’s defense also emphasized that his right to a fair and impartial public hearing has been violated, as well as his right to a fair trial within a reasonable timeframe.
According to his defense team, because of these reasons, they are requesting Thaci’s release and the dismissal of all his pending charges.
The Specialized Prosecutor’s Office situated in The Hague, has made some serious allegations against Thaci including war crimes and crimes against humanity, involvement in murder, violent disappearances of people, persecutions and acts of torture.
