Kosovo Press Review – April 15, 2011

Masked persons claiming to be members of the ANA were ‘actors’. 18 members of the Krasniqi family, which is still looking for four missing relatives, are reburied. PM office awards controversial tenders.       


A Kosovo representative of the Front for National Unification of Albanians, FBKSH, Ismail Bajraktari, said that the group of masked persons claiming to be members of the Albanian National Army, ANA, acted to mark the seventh anniversary of ANA’s first public appearance. 


Sami Krasniqi has reburied 18 members of his family who were murdered and burned in 1999 by Serb forces. Four other members of the family are missing.


The Prime Minister’s office awarded two suspicious tenders for translation and the supply of daily newspapers. The PM’s office did not offer the tender to more then one company even though there are many translation firms in Pristina.

Balkan Insight has not verified the facts in the original press reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
