BELGRADE – The Serbian Justice Ministry on Tuesday sent an extradition request to France for Ramush Haradinaj, a source in the ministry told Tanjug.

The request was accompanied by documentation translated to the French language, based on which the French judiciary will decide whether the criteria for Haradinaj’s extradition to Serbia have been met.

A court in Colmar in eastern France on January 5 ordered Haradinaj, a former KLA commander during Kosovo’s 1998-99 war, to remain in custody rather than be released under judicial supervision following his arrest by French police a day earlier.
