The President of the Republic, Bujar Nishani, has decreed this Monday granting Albanian citizenship to former KLA commander, Ramush Haradinaj, and his wife, Anita Haradinaj.
Although Ramush Haradinaj is still in France, awaiting the court's decision to extradite him or not to Serbia, from Tirana , The President Nishani, gives Albanian Passport for Haradinaj family.
Haradinaj was arrested in January this year by French police after an international warrant issued by Serbia.
Although there have been many reactions from this decision from Kosovo and Albania, for 4 months, Ramush Haradinaj is awaiting the final decision of the Colmar Court in France.
But Haradinaj is not the only citizen of Albania. Almost all public personalities, politicians, journalists or businessmen are equipped with Albanian citizenship by the decree of the President of the Republic, while a large part of them are taken through other legal acts.
In 2013, former Prime Minister Berisha, with the decision of the Albanian government, was granted dual citizenship for the citizens of Kosovo, but it was not implemented terrestically, only in cases when that citizen acquires Albanian citizenship, if there are 100 thousand euros.
