Trouble in Kosovo: The ongoing dilemma of war crime indictments

On November 5th 2020, Hacim Thaçi, President of Kosovo, publicly announced his resignation and flew to The Hague to face trial. Thaçi is accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity dating from his time as a Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) commander in the 1990s, crimes that he vehemently denies. He was accompanied by other prominent Kosovan politicians from both the governing and opposition parties in the indictment. This is the most dramatic incident amongst a series of high-profile indictments against Kosovo’s leadership since the country’s unilateral declaration of independence in 1999.
