Kosovo Press Review – October 10, 2012

Dino Asanaj widow Adelina Recica, is among the suspects in the Grand Hotel affair. Ruling PDK is hunting for opposition lawmakers, since it looses the numbers at the parliament


Koha Ditore

A Kosovo and European prosecution team is investigating the claims that a group of people have asked money from Deputy Prime Minister Behgjet Pacolli and the businessman Remzi Ejupi to settle down the affair of the “Grand Hotel” privatization. Adelina Recica the widow of Dino Asanaj is among the suspects interrogated by the police for the claims raised by Pacolli and Ejupi that realtors have asked for € 4 million to settle the issue of their shares in the Grand Hotel.


Kosovo’s Central Bank is gambling with the states money. KCB invested around €100 millions of Kosovo’s budget in bonds of the Italian treasury. Such investments are seen as risky as investing in the bonds of the Greek treasury.


The ruling Democratic Party of Kosovo, PDK, is hunting for opposition MP’s at the parliament to make them join its parliamentary group. Some PDK lawmakers have already started negotiating with their opposition colleagues, but so far no results on sight. Since PDK is facing internal troubles with Jakup Krasniqi and Fatmir Limaj speaking differently from the mother party, the parliamentary group knows that it can count no more on their votes during the voting in the legislative.
