Kosovo: EULEX “abuse scandal”– update

Eulex-headPRISTINA (PRISHTINA) – Kosovo ++ The beforehand forwarded information about Kosovan media reports on an EULEX internally investigated  “abuse scandal”, was now “downgraded” to “misconduct”. The accused police chief and three further unit members of the “close protection unit” were in charge for the physical security of EULEX Head of Mission, Xavier de Marnhac. According to EULEX and media reports, allegations against the suspended or internally temporarily transferred police officers  refer to “non-sexual abuse” respectively psychological misconduct and misuse of an official position. The case is said to be taken seriously by EULEX.

Investigation results are expected soon. Kosovo-Albanian employees raised accusations in terms of offending behavior against their religion, nationality and state. Reportedly the concerned staff was threatened by the accused, to be dismissed from their jobs in case they would publicly report on this issue.
