Kosovo’s Prime Minister, Ramush Haradinaj, has reacted today after statements by foreign embassies in Pristina criticizing politics for the deportation of six Turkish nationals from Kosovo. Haradinaj took to Facebook to note that no security institution can violate human rights. He wrote: “with respect to competencies outlined in the Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo and respecting the legislation of the Republic of Kosovo, I have deemed of vital importance to fully resolve the forceful deportation of the Turkish nationals from Kosovo. In addressing this situation, I launched immediate institutional measures by dismissing the Director of the AKI [Kosovo’s Intelligence Agency] and the Minister of Interior Affairs who had direct responsibility for the case. Fully committed to clarify institutional responsibilities, possible violations of the constitution and the law, the protection of human rights, and above all, to guarantee national security, I have requested investigation reports from the State Chief Prosecutor, the General Director of Kosovo Police, the Chief Inspector of the Kosovo Intelligence Agency, the Secretary General of the Ministry of Interior Affairs, the Kosovo Police Inspectorate, the Civil Aviation Authority and the Air Navigation Services Agency. Furthermore, with respect to accountability, I have answered the invitation of the ad-hoc parliamentary committee that investigated the forceful deportation of the Turkish nationals. I have answered their questions and submitted to them an official report on all the actions of the government. The steps taken by the government are guarantees that if faced with similar situations we will be uncompromised in the implementation of Kosovo’s laws. Without any prejudice, the rule of law will be our only path. Revealing the truth, those responsible and the legal violations, will help build democracy and protect human rights. No one is above the law and no institution in Kosovo will violate universal human rights”.
