After Kosovo Parliament ratified on Wednesday the Agreement on border demarcation with Montenegro, Kosovo now has to fulfil the very last benchmark – fighting organised crime and corruption - in order for Kosovo citizens to enjoy visa free regime in the EU Schengen area.
A day after Kosovo Parliament has ratified the Agreement on border demarcation with Montenegro, heads of the rule of law institutions of Kosovo and Justice Minister held a joint meeting in a bid to coordinate efforts and increase efficiency in fighting organised crime and corruption. They pledged that rule of law institutions remain committed to fulfil the last criterion enabling Kosovo citizens freedom of movement in the EU Schengen area.
Minister of Justice, Abelard Tahiri, in a statement posted in his Twitter account said that he is aware rule of law and fight against corruption are state and institutional responsibility and condition for visa liberalisation. “I met with representatives of the institutions of the justice system. Corruption will not hinder Kosovo’s European perspective and free movement of our citizens,” Tahiri said.
