After the Kosovo government’s first meeting for this year, Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said that 100 percent tax will be in effect until there is no recognition of Kosovo from Serbia. Haradinaj said he will not obey to Serbia and Brussels’s requests for the 100 percent tax evasion.
He also spoke about the missing persons and kidnapped during the war by Serbia. “You are aware that we still receive bodies at the Serbian border,” he said and added that Kosovo has never received a single certificate which describes how did those people die or end up in Batajnica and Danube.
Speaking about the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, Haradinaj said both the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) and the Vetevendosje Movement should be strengthening the dialogue, as they have their role in this regard.
Haradinaj did not want to comment on nomination of the Civil Aviation Director, Heset Berisha, who was an advisor to the Minister of Infrastructure, Pal Lekaj. “I do not know him, nor do I know whose adviser he was,” Haradinaj said.
As for the strikes in education, healthcare and Trepça, Haradinaj said that the government has for the first time sent the Draft Law on Salaries, which will be regulating and leveling salaries in the public sector.
