The Minister for Communities and Returns and the Deputy Prime Minister of the Kosovo Government in resignation, Dalibor Jevtic, believe that the issue of “Trepca” probably will be tackled within the framework of the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, KIM radio reports on Friday.
The government adopted this week a draft of the Trepca Statute and forwarded it to the Kosovo Assembly for consideration.
Jevtic argues that such a decision does not have the consent of representatives of all communities in Kosovo.
“In this case, the opinion of Serb representatives in northern Kosovo that is not respected is very important. They are not part of this process and have not been involved in the drafting of the Statute. I think that’s not good, and that it is another move that is one-sided. This is yet another decision-making process based on one-national interests, which is not good, “Jevtic says.
According to the draft statute, the Kosovo government owns 80% of the shares, while the owners of 20% of shares will be workers, in accordance with the “Trepca” Law.
“I think the Trepca issue will be resolved in some other place, probably within the framework of the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, because in this way, as it stands, neither the Law nor the law enforcement process will be possible in the north of Kosovo,” concludes Jevtic.
