Today’s parliamentary proceedings in Kosovo have started with accusations by MPs of Self Determination against the government led by PM Mustafa.

Glauk Konjufca, an MP from this party has reacted about the latest arrests made against activists of this party, where he also gave details about the arrest of Dardam Molliqaj, Etleva Malushaj and Frasher Krasniqi.

“On 1 May, the secretary of Self Determination, Dardan Molliqaj was arrested by police in the airport, where he was held for many hours without any explanation. When he was brought to Pristina, the prosecutor freed him, but police didn’t obey the order. Two days after Dardan’s arrest, another two activists of SD, Frasher Krasniqi and Etleva Malushaj were arrested”, declared Konjufca.

The head of the parliamentary group of Self Determination said that the government is trying to use intimidation and punishment to oppress discontent among people

“Mustafa’s government has lost all reasoning. The model of the state that this government is building can only be considered as a police state. This is a sign that the government is not worried about the problems of the citizens, but to oppress their discontent”, he said.

According to him, the problems that have been accumulated cannot be solved by jailing the opposition.

“Isa Mustafa’s government is not tackling the causes, but it’s spreading fear and punishing those who are not happy. This is disappointing because poverty, unemployment and corruption in this country cannot be solved by jailing the opposition”, said Konjufca. /ibna/
