Kosovo President, Hashim Thaci said he would resign if indictment against him, which reportedly includes war crimes and crimes against humanity is confirmed, in a video address released on Monday.
«In the following days, I will consult with the political leaders about the next steps. I assure you again, I will not face justice from this office. If the accusation is confirmed, I will immediately resign as your president and face the accusations,» he said.
The charges have been filed against Thaci and some other officials, including former Speaker of the Assembly, Kadri Veseli, at the Kosovo Specialist Chambers in The Hague, assuming they were responsible for around 100 murders.
The pre-trial process accessing the charges is underway with Thaci rejecting the allegations.
