  • Ramush Haradinaj a former Kosovo prime minister appears in court in Colmar eastern France. A French court refuses Thursday

Ramush Haradinaj had been arrested when he arrived in France in January this year, on the basis of an global warrant issued by Serbia in 2004.

Kosovo, a predominantly ethnic Albanian province, unilaterally declared independence a decade after the conflict, a move since recognised by more than 100 countries but not by Belgrade or its big brother ally Russian Federation.

"He lost three and half months" of his life waiting for this decision, Lindon told The Associated Press, "but happily it's over".

Haradinaj was a guerilla commander during the 1998-99 Kosovo war.

The Alliance for the Future of Kosovo said that the detention had been completely unnecessary and was "Serbia's open attempt to destabilize Kosovo".

Serbia's Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic meanwhile called a government meeting in Belgrade to discuss the ruling. She said it is unclear whether he will stay in France.

14 killed as landmine blast hits van in Kurram
Earlier, on 31st March 2017, a deadliest explosion outside an Imam Bargah killed at least 24 and injured over 80. In January, a bomb planted in a busy vegetable market killed 21 Shias in the same town.

"We have to consider all implications of this move", a government official who asked not to be named told Reuters.

Known as "Rambo" for his stocky build and military prowess, he is seen as a hero my many at home for his efforts to win independence for Kosovo from late Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic.

Serbia requested Haradinaj be transferred to the country after French authorities arrested him in January on a Serbian warrant.

After the previous hearing last month, Haradinaj had described himself as a "political hostage". A French court refuses Thursday April 27, 2017 to extradite former Kosovo prime minister to Serbia to face war crimes charges.

The decision prompted delight among the former prime minister's supporters outside the court as well as in Kosovo's capital, Pristina. "No explanation can remove the impression that politics once again trumped justice, and that the killing of Serbs is justified and allowed, unlike the crimes committed against other nations", the Serbian president said.

Normalized bilateral relations are considered a precondition for Serbia and Kosovo to gain European Union membership, which both countries are seeking.
