Kosovo Parliament calls for ex-premier's release

PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — Kosovo Parliament has called on France to immediately release its former prime minister, Ramush Haradinaj, who is wanted by Serbia on war crimes charges.

A resolution approved Thursday also called on the government to cancel negotiations with Serbia on normalizing ties until Haradinaj is released.

In January Haradinaj was detained in France where now he is on judicial supervision waiting a court decision whether he will be extradited to Serbia. The verdict is expected on April 6.

Haradinaj, a guerrilla fighter in Kosovo's 1998-1999 war for independence from Serbia, was cleared of war crimes charges by a U.N. tribunal.
