Kosovo Press Review - January 24, 2013

Amount of money dedicated to the Fund for the North remains unclear. Indictment on Fatmir Limaj based on false data. EULEX starts interviews with regard to the murder of Mustafa.

KOHA DITORE

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.

EXPRESS

EULEX has started interviews in order to shed light into the mysterious killing of one of Kosovo Democratic League’s members, Xhemajl Mustafa.

The daily quotes its sources in the EU rule of law mission saying “several people have been interviewed with regard to the murder of Mustafa”.

According to Express, one of the people interviewed since now is also Bahrije Mustafa, the victims wife.

Xhemajl Mustafa was the top political advisor to Kosovo former president, Ibrahim Rugova.

He was killed in November of 2000 in Pristina.
