Kosovo President Hashim Thaci Thursday was seen entering the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office (SPO) premises for the fourth consecutive day when he is being questioned by the Hague prosecutors on war crime allegations, Gazeta Express reports.

Thaci has not addressed to media while entering the building. He is staying at the Hague since Monday to answer the questions of the prosecutors, after the SPO on 24 June announced filing of a war crime indictment against him, for his role as political representative of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) during 1998-1999 war.

He was questioned for three days in a row for more than six hours each day and every day several of Albanians have gathered in front of the Court’s house in support of Thaci. After the first day of questioning Thaci told media that this was more about technicalities between his lawyer and the Hague prosecutors. The SPO indictment filed with the Kosovo Specialist Chambers is yet to be confirmed by a pre-trial judge, who has up to six months to decide on whether to confirm or dismiss the indictment. Thaci has stated earlier that he would resign as country’s President if the indictment is confirmed. /GazetaExpress/
