Kosovo’s caretaker Govenrment has dismissed General Director of the Kosovo Civil Aviation Authority, Eset Berisha.

The Government in a statement issued late on Tuesday after the video-conference meeting said that Berisha was dismissed because of the violations in his professional work. According to the Government’s statement, Berisha has drafted and signed an internal Regulation of the Aviation Authority in violation with the law, demoted management staff without performance evaluation, and with his decision risked sending Kosovo at the International Court of Arbitrage. According to the Government appointment of Eset Berisha as General Director of the KCAA was in violation with the law. The Government appointed Arian Islami as acting director of the KCAA. Berisha was dismissed at the proposal of the caretaker PM Albin Kurti, after the justification presented by the Prime Minister’s Office.  

Gazeta Express reports that Berisha was political advisor to former minister of Infrastructure Pal Lekaj, and was one of the signatories of the Agreement on restoring direct flights between Pristina and Belgrade reached in January 2020 in Berlin, at the mediation of the US Presidential envoy on Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Richard Grenell. The Agreement was hailed by the US President Donald Trump. /GazetaExpress/
