The Kosovo Government has paid €500,000 to the company of Cherie Blair, the wife of Tony Blair, for legal counseling on the Special Court, Pristina-based television T7 claims, Gazeta Express portal reported.
Although all contracts between the Kosovo Government and international companies are confidential, Kosovo Minister of Justice, Abelard Tahiri confirmed for T7 that the government is receiving advisory services on how to behave towards Serbia during this process.
