Lawmakers belonging to the AAK parliamentary group changed their mind during Thursdays session at the Parliament, by abstaining during the voting of Vetevendosje’s motion to stop the privatization process. With 53 votes pro, 9 abstention and 45 votes against, the lawmakers rejected the adoption of the motion, and as such allowed the government to further proceed with selling the shares of the state owned companies.

Regardless of the critics launched by German Minister of Defence Thomas de Maiziere, on the performance of EULEX and calling for its restructuring, the European Union is not willing to change anything regarding its rule of law mission to Kosovo. Catherine Ashton’s office says that EULEX will continue to function as it is, till June 2014.

Pristina’s District Prosecution gave an end to the dilemmas surrounding the mysterious death of Kosovo’s Privatization Agency Director Dino Asanaj. The prosecutors have formally closed the investigation into the case, by saying that Asanaj committed suicide, by stabbing himself 11 times with a knife. But the investigation into what has pushed Dino Asanaj to death is still ongoing.

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