President of the Republic of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga has received today (21/07) the head of the Special Investigation Task Force (SITF), the American prosecutor, Clint Williamson, as part of a visit that he’s holding in Kosovo.

President Jahjaga said that institutions of Kosovo are committed to collaborate with SITF in the upcoming period in order to strengthen law and order and meet all obligations toward international and domestic justice system.

President Jahjaga said that parliament of Kosovo has backed the creation of a Special Court and once the newly elected institutions are consolidated, they will implement the ratified agreement by making the necessary legal and constitutional changes to accommodate the creation of the new court.

“President Jahjaga said that Kosovo is determined to have a comprehensive approach to justice and the investigations that stem from the European Council report are not an attempt to judge our collective battle for freedom, but to investigate alleged individual crimes”, says the president’s press statement.

President Jahjaga assured prosecutor Williamson that Kosovo is determined to face these accusations in a trusted process and will meet all its obligations with responsibility and dignity in order to end this chapter which will strengthen Kosovo’s international position.

Williamson, who is visiting Kosovo ahead of the announcement of the inquiry findings, thanked president Jahjaga for the support given to Special Investigation Task Force. /ibna/
