German Member of the European Parliament, Markus Ferber, says corruption, impunity, and non-implementation of laws by Kosovo leaders, are hindering visa liberalization.
MEP Ferber said political elite in Kosovo is using double standards with its people, by employing their relatives, and not supporting citizens. Ferber also said that corruption cannot be fought by the corrupt officials. He criticized Ramush Haradinaj’s Government for the large number of ministers who as he said are corrupt and have files at the courts, but despite this they continue leading the country. But despite criticism Ferber said the European Parliament is the inly EU institution recognizing Kosovo under its official name as the Republic of Kosovo nad gave the green light for visa liberalization.
