PRIŠTINA -- A million dollars will be necessary for the defense of Hague indictee Ramush Haradinaj, an internet page dedicated to his defense says.
Haradinaj’s party, the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo (AAK), has confirmed that they need USD 1mn, but that they were facing a dilemma on where to find the money.
“The funds are necessary and it’s very urgent,” wrote Haradinaj’s defense attorneys.
Priština-based Albanian language daily Zeri has reported an AAK official’s statement that they could not comment on ways of providing the money at the moment.
Haradinaj’s adviser Besnik Tahiri told the daily that AAK would be fully involved in the work of the defense team and that it would work together with Haradinaj’s family on providing any kind of logistics necessary for the court proceedings.
