Head of the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) parliamentary group, Memli Krasniqi, reacted to opposition parties the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) and Vetevendosje, walking out of today’s session of the Assembly demanding the resignation of Kadri Veseli, Speaker and PDK leader.
The session today was called to establish a commission that would work on laying the groundwork for the creation of a tribunal to try Serbian war crimes in Kosovo, an initiative launched by Veseli.
“The request of LDK and Vetevendosje not to vote the establishment of the commission that would launch the creation of a tribunal for Serbian genocide in Kosovo, even though it may sound harsh is taking the side of those who have denied this genocide for 20 years,” Kraniqi said.
He added that the initiative for establishment of the tribunal will not stop. “How can an MP that wants to block and kill initiative for the tribunal look oneself in the mirror? I am sorry to see them leave the session just like they avoided responsibility hundred other times before,” Krasniqi said of LDK and Vetevendosje MPs adding: “Let this be in their honour, but whoever comes against this request will end up on the side of shame.”
