Prime Minister of Kosovo, Isa Mustafa has reacted over last night’s developments in Pristina, considering violence as an unacceptable political instrument.

“Such news makes us feel bad. As prime minister of Kosovo, I’m determined to fully respect the division of power”, Mustafa said.

He added that a politician cannot intervene in the work of the law enforcement agencies and judiciary institutions.

“We’re all equal in front of the law. This is how we have decided when we have voted bills and the Constitution of our country. I’d like to believe that law and order agencies act in compliance with the laws and Constitution and the maturity required by the situation that our country is going through”, Mustafa said.

Mustafa demanded a responsible behavior in order not to cause obstacles for the European path of the country.

“Especially now, when we’re ahead of the signature of the Stabilization and Association Agreement with the European Union and the finalization of the criteria for the visa liberalization regime, we need a responsible behavior which serves stability”, he added.

Meanwhile, the prosecution announced that it has launched an inquiry against opposition MPs for causing unrest and use of weapons.

Last night, the Self Determination Party MP and founder of this party, Albin Kurti was arrested by police and this led to a tense situation in front of the police headquarter, where the crowd clashed with police forces.  A few hours later, Kurti was released. /ibna/
