Vetevendosje leader Albin Kurti said today at the Assembly session debating on the initiative of Speaker Kadri Veseli for setting up an international tribunal to try war crimes committed by Serbian forces in Kosovo that it would take years for such a mechanism to become fully functional and called the idea “naïve” and “childish”.
“It will take many years from the outset of the tribunal’s idea to it becoming operational and how can we even call it an international tribunal when there will be no other country in it except for Kosovo. Speaking about an international tribunal does not mean to rush but rather to move slowly,” Kurti said.
He added that the idea of setting up a tribunal would give Serbia more time. “This idea assures Serbia that it will be safe for another decade,” Kurti said.
He said Kosovo has not time to lose and should adopt law for trial in absentia and sue Serbia for genocide at the International Court of Justice.
