Kosovo’s Minister of Justice, Abelard Tahiri, met today with a delegation of EU experts who are visiting Pristina to discuss Kosovo’s actions in the implementation of the Joint Action Plan on Counter-Terrorism for the Western Balkans. Tahiri briefed the delegation on the legal amendments, starting with the amendment of the new Criminal Code and the new Criminal Procedure Code that foresees the trial in absentia and extended investigations on such acts that will help Kosovo better fight these phenomena. Tahiri said Kosovo’s institutions are committed to an uncompromised fight against organized crime and terror. In terms of the Joint Action Plan, Tahiri mentioned the operation in April this year for the repatriation of 110 Kosovars from Syria. He assured the EU delegation that all suspects will face justice and that the victims will be rehabilitated and reintegrated in society. “As members of the Global Alliance against ISIS, Kosovo’s institutions will be determined in meeting their obligations,” he added. Tahiri also said that for the efficient implementation of the Joint Action Plan, Kosovo will cooperate closely with all countries in the region and EU member states and share its experiences in the returns process and rehabilitation and reintegration programs. The EU delegation commended Tahiri for the courage shown in the repatriation operation, on results in the fight against terror and violent extremism and for the cooperation with the EU and its member states.
