President resigns to face war crimes in The Hague


Kosovar President Hashim Thaci resigned Thursday to face war crimes charges in The Hague, becoming the highestpro­file target of internatio­nal efforts to bring justice to victims of the two- decade conflict that led to Kosovo’s independen­ce. A special prosecutor in The Hague announced preliminar­y indictment­s against Thaci, including murder charges, in June, just days before he was to attend a White House meeting with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic intended to achieve a breakthrou­gh between their countries. Now the Hague prosecutio­n has taken a step forward. Thaci told reporters that the indictment against him had been confirmed after a review by a pretrial judge inthe special chamber in The Hague.
