Hague war crime prosecutors quiz Kosovo President Thaci

Kosovo President Hashim Thaci was interviewed in The Hague on Monday by the Kosovo Specialist Prosecutor’s Office, which is probing wartime and post-war crimes.
The Specialist Prosecutor’s Office announced on June 24 that it has an unconfirmed indictment charging Thaci, as well as senior Kosovo politician Kadri Veseli and other former Kosovo Liberation Army, KLA fighters, with war crimes and crimes against humanity.
“Nobody can rewrite history. This is the price you pay for freedom,” Thaci said as he arrived for the interview with the prosecutors.
If the indictment is confirmed by a judge, Thaci faces trial at the Kosovo Specialist Chambers in The Hague. He has denied any wrongdoing and has said he will step down as president if he is put on trial.
