Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj dismissed Vesna Mikic yesterday from the post of the Deputy Minister of Justice, whereby he stated that there is “no room for individuals, regardless of their ethnicity in the Kosovo government and Kosovo institutions that can undermine a common Euro-Atlantic values,” reports KIM radio.
Mikic responded, regarding her dismissal, that democracy in Kosovo was just an illusion.
“If we as representatives of the Serbian community need to talk and think only in the way they expect and what they want to hear, then what kind of democracy are we talking about today,” Vesna Mikic told RTV Puls.
Serbian media recall that Mikic, on the occasion of 20th anniversary of the NATO bombing of the FR Yugoslavia, wrote on her private Facebook account, that “over a sovereign country, which fought back against Albanian terrorism within its borders for a decade, was committed a deliberate planned genocide by the NATO alliance.”
The decision on Mikic’s dismissal arrived today from the Cabinet of the Prime Minister of Kosovo, on the grounds that it was a hate speech which is sanctioned by the Constitution and the law, reports KIM radio.
The former deputy minister of justice in the Kosovo government from the ranks of the Serbian list said that she heard about the dismissal from a friend who saw it on Haradinaj’s Facebook profile.
Since she was not officially informed about her dismissal, Vesna Mikic announced that she would appear on the job the next day.
“I consider that no one’s rights are hurt if I give my opinion and position on my private Facebook profile. If I, as a representative of the Serbian people, do not have the right to mention that day, for which everyone in the world knows that it was an illegal act and that the aggression against Serbia was an unjust act, so how can we understand their “epopee” in Prekaze near Pec when they mark the start of the aggression on the FRY as a historic day for the Albanian people in Kosovo,” Mikic said, adding that if democracy is intended for only one community in Kosovo, we have nothing to talk about.”
