Todays session has started with presentation of arguments by Haradinajs defense, which was focused on some testimonies of witnesses over the actions of Haradinaj in Gllogjan and Jabllanica.
The lawyer of Haradinaj, Emerson, said that during his presentation over the testimony of witness Rrustem Dedaj and the testimonies related to this court and intervention of Haradinaj, he recalled the detention of Skender Kuši.
The lawyer was focused on the testimony of Rrustem Dedaj, for whom the defense said that he was the person that went through hard journey and went to Jabllanica and rebuked him on treatment of Kuši and ordered his release.
The defense repeated the issue that Haradinaj has achieved great reputation and respect in that zone.
The lawyer said that Haradinaj was commander of those who wanted to follow him and who wanted to call him commander and to support the cause that he represented, adding that he depended on the great reputation that he had and from this point can be thought that the maltreatment of detained persons and the accusations that were based on tortures of detained persons would have the opposite effect of what Haradinaj wanted to reach on the consensus of the community to participate in a volunteer force.
The defense was focused as well on the testimony of witness 3, where, according to the defense, he was taken from Gllogjan by Lahi Brahimaj and he was brought to Jabllanica with the reasoning that he had stolen a rifle.
