The US ambassador to Kosovo, Tracey Ann Jacobson said today that the Special Tribunal will soon be formed.

“My stance as far as the formation of the Special Tribunal is concerned, is known. I believe that this tribunal will be formed”, said Jacobson during an activity held in Mother Teresa square.

Kosovo’s institutions are in the final stage of sending all the amendments for voting in parliament and the voting is expected to take place on May 21.

Meanwhile, as far as the formation of the Special Tribunal is concerned, the international community has often called for Kosovo to form this tribunal, which will try the alleged crimes committed by KLA members during the war in Kosovo.

In regards to this tribunal, three opposition parties, Self Determination, Alliance for the Future of Kosovo and Incentive for Kosovo have warned that they will vote against the formation of this tribunal. /ibna/
