Kosovo Press Review – November 14, 2012

Kosovo’s government informs the Quint member states about the talks with Serbia’s government. Customs officers will be sent at the troubled northern border with Serbia.

Prime Minister Hashim Thaci has informed the President, certain opposition parties and Quint ambassadors but bypassed the Parliament President to explain what he talked about with Serbia’s Prime Minister Ivica Dacic. But the Assembly Speaker Jakup Krasniqi, even though he is the third most senior statesmen, says that Thaci’s attitude doesn’t mean much to him.


Government officials claim that by December this year, Kosovo Albanian Customs and Police Officers will be dislocated and placed into the northern border crossings at Jarinje and Brnjak. Besides the two most problematic checkpoints, the officials will also be present alongside the border with Serbia, in four other crossings.


The family of Agim Zogaj, who testified in the trial against the Former Kosovo Liberation Army Commander Fatmir Limaj under the tag name Witness X, has engaged a lawyer to get answers as to what led their family member to commit suicide. The Zogaj family suspects that the international prosecutor Maurizio Salustro is responsible for the death of Agim. Their efforts have not given results, and for that reason the Zogaj family plans to seek justice within the EU.

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