Kosovo’s outgoing minister of Justice, Abelard Tahiri, has received today acting head of EULEX, Bernd Thran, to discuss on cooperation of rule of law institutions. During the meeting Tahiri asked EULEX to offer help on increase of professional capacities for Kosovo judges and prosecutors, according to a press release of the Ministry of Justice.

Tahiri said that during his mandate as Minister of Justice he was focused on approving the legislation which would enable confiscation and sequestration of assets obtained illegally. He said implementation of the new Law on confiscation of illicit wealth, fight against corruption and organised crime remain top priorities of Kosovo rule of law institutions. “The new Law on confiscation of assets will become the main weapon in our efforts to fight organised crime and corruption,” Tahiri stated. During the meeting Tahiri and Thran discussed also on judicial reform and monitoring of judiciary by EULEX. /GazetaExpress/
