Kosovo Police won’t ask EULEX

MaliqiPRISTINA, Kosovo — According to Kosovar broadcasting media the Kosovo Police director Reshat Maliqi doesn’t intend to ask for EULEX permissions regarding police activities in the Serb populated north of the Kosovar territory. Reportedly director Maliqi is even ready to send Kosovo Special Police Forces if required. “There are movements of criminal groups in the Bosniac mahalla and Suhodoll, and when they violate the law through smuggling, or risk the life or property of people, then we don’t need any special permission to be present there with our specialised units, but we go out and do our job” Maliqi said in an interview with a Kosovar TV station.

Addressing the EU rule-of-law mission EULEX, the Kosovo Police director requested better cooperation: “It is correct, collegial and professional to inform us, then we could support them” – EULEX should be aware that they are guests in Kosovo and they should inform the Kosovo Police on their actions, Maliqi was quoted as saying.

He reminded, that despite clashes with EULEX police, the last three months showed an increase in fighting crime successfully. Finally Maliqi demands a transfer of executive competencies from EULEX as soon as possible. KON / NK
