Hundreds
of political youth protested on Wednesday in front of the French Embassy in
Tirana to require the immediate release of the former prime minister and prominent
politician in Kosovo, Ramush Haradinaj.



"With
Ramush", "Ramush is Kosovo" or "France do not disappoint us"
billboards they said that Haradinaj is the symbol of freedom.



They
said that France know Kosovo as an independent country and they believe that
this country is not helping Serbia.



"We
believe that Haradinaj's extradition is an absurd action and we urge to release
him and return him in Kosovo," said the head of the Youth Movement
for Integration, Floida Kerpaci.



At the same time, Kosovo's
government is calling on French authorities to release a former prime minister
who has been detained facing possible extradition to Serbia to face war crimes
charges.



Haradinaj,
48, a guerrilla fighter in Kosovo's 1998-1999 war for independence from Serbia
and now an opposition political leader, is accused by Serbia of committing
kidnappings, torture and killings against Serb civilians when he was a senior
rebel commander in western Kosovo.
