U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo, Greg Delawie, is concerned with the political influence over courts in Kosovo. Ambassador Delawie made the comments as part of the “Anti-Corruption Week” which is taking place under the auspices of the nongovernmental organizations of Kosovo.
“I am concerned with the political influence over courts. I hope this coalition will make efforts to progress in the rule of law. Fighting corruption is priority and we will offer moral support for those friends who share our opinions,” Delawie said in his speech. Delawie also urged Kosovo authorities to continue fighting organized crime and corruption.
“Corruption is deep rooted. It cannot be eradicated within a night or a year. The progress is impossible without persistence. The work should continue. There is corruption in the public procurement which is preventing investments,” Delawie said. The event held on Friday in Pristina is attended also by the Kosovo Democratic Institute (KDI), Group for Legal and Political Studies (GLPS), NGO ‘Cohu”, Initiative for Progress (INPO), KIPRED Institute and Columbus.
