Rexhep Selimi, Member of Parliament of the Vetevendosje movement, says that the biggest opposition party will vote in favour of abrogating the Law on Speccial Court. According to him, the initiative on undoing this international war crimes court should come from the Government or President’s Office.
The Vetevendosje confirms that their MPs will vote in favour of repealing the Law on Special Court which will deal with alleged crimes committed by the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). The news has been confirmed by the Vetevendosje MP, Rexhep Selimi. During an interview with the daily Zeri, Selimi said that the initiative on abrogating the Law should come directly from the Government or President’s Office and not using “individuals” or alternative options to reach this goal. Former KLA commander said that the vote of Vetevendosje against the war crimes court is not being done to protect any individual, but to prove to citizens that this court is wrong. The request on repealing the Law came on 23 December, when 43 MPs from the ruling parties collected the signatures asking the law be abrogated. Regardless their request, no Assembly session has been held because the Assembly’s Presidency which sets the agenda of the plenary session failed to convene twice on 22 December due to lack of quorum, whereas the Assembly is officially in winter recess until 15 January.
