Kosovo continues to have deficiencies in institutional mechanisms for the fight against corruption.

Even this year, the engagement of institutions to fight corruption is the same as previous years and that this year has seen many corruptive offenses.

This was declared by Fiadan Kalaja from “Speak” Movement in a press conference. He presented the anti-corruption statistics for the period July-September 2014 of the Police, Prosecution and Courts in the framework of the Platform of Anti-Corruption Statistics.

These statistics also included the statistics of the National Coordinator for the Fight of Financial Crime and Agency for the Administration of Seized Assets.

Mr. Kalaja said that data on corruption indicate that Police of Kosovo, Prosecution and Courts, have processed from July to September 2014 a total number of 367 cases concerning corruption.

“In these 367 cases, Police of Kosovo has processed 152 cases, Prosecution has processed 176 cases, while Courts have processed a total of 48 cases”, says Kalaja. /ibna/
