The last agreement between Kosovo and Serbia did not specify the percentage of duty taxes at Jarinje and Bernjak, which have to be put into the fund for the north nor has it specified the longevity of the fund.

As a result, the agreement was interpreted differently in Pristina and Belgrade.

The paper says uncertainties on this issue enable the allocation of different amounts of money between 6 up to 90 million euro into the fund.

The indictment on corruption charges of former Kosovo telecommunication minister, Fatmir Limaj, is based on false phone messages. The paper says the history of phone messages by Kosovo Post-Telecom it has secured proofs the messages used by EULEX for the indictment are false.
