HARADINAJ DECISION SUSPENDED UNTIL 6 DECEMBER
As the Appeals Chamber has not yet rendered its decision on the prosecution appeal against the decision allowing Ramush Haradinaj to resume limited political activity, the Trial Chamber extended until 6 December the stay on the execution of its own decision

The execution of the Trial Chamber's decision to allow the accused Ramush Haradinaj's to resume limited political activity in Kosovo has been stayed until 6 December, or "until such date as the Appeals Chamber may render its decision, if this occurs prior to that date".
This is the third time that the Trial Chamber II, hearing the case against the former KLA commander and Kosovo prime minister Ramush Haradinaj, has extended the stay of the execution of its own decision. On 12 October 2005, it rendered the decision allowing the accused to resume limited political activity, under UNMIK control. It was stayed the first time on 14 October, as soon as the prosecution, "scandalized", announced it would be filing an appeal. After that, on 31 October the Trial Chamber extended the stay until 21 November, estimating that the Appeals Chamber would have rendered its decision on the prosecution appeal by then. The deadline expired today, the Appeals Chamber has not yet ruled on the appeal, and the Trial Chamber decided to extend the stay by two more weeks, until 6 December 2005. Ramush Haradinaj will have to forego participating in the political life in Kosovo until then.
