The former commanders of the Kosovo Liberation Army are heading to the Netherlands to prove their innocence during the war period.

During the day, Thaçi held a press conference where announced that he is stepping down as indictment charges were confirmed by the Specialist Chambers.

“As I have promised I will not allow under any circumstances to face the Court as the President of the Republic of Kosovo to protect the integrity of the presidency, of the state and the dignity of our people. I hereby resign as the President of the Republic of Kosovo”.

After Thaçi’s resignation, it is the Speaker of the Assembly, Vjosa Osmani, that will take over the Presidency as stipulated by the Constitution of Kosovo.
