The Anti-Corruption Task Force was closed due to investigations against Minister Agim Veliu
Investigators of the Anti-Corruption Task Force had initiated a preliminary investigation into three tenders of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, signed by Minister Agim Veliu. These actions were taken in coordination with a prosecutor of the Special Prosecution.
KOHA has learned that this is a regular tender, worth 1 million 400 thousand euros and two negotiated 300 thousand euros each. The third deals with license plates. According to sources, the documents from the Ministry of Interior, related to them, had been requested for about a month and a half.
Even for such a thing, so far 10 people have been interviewed. Regarding this issue, the television has contacted the Minister of Internal Affairs, Agim Veliu.
Through the phone, he denied the connection of the MIA tender investigation with the termination of the task force.
The closure of the Anti-Corruption Task Force has remotely clashed with ruling coalition partners.
Five days after the decision of the Government of Kosovo to repeal the decision for the functioning of this department within the Kosovo Police, reacted the chairman of the AAK, Ramush Haradinaj.
Only 15 minutes after Haradinaj’s post, Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti reacted. On Facebook, Hoti wrote that politics should not be mixed with justice.
Haradinaj responded to Prime Minister Hoti.
The decision of the Kosovo government to terminate the anti-corruption task force has also been criticized by the ambassadors of EU countries in Kosovo and civil society.
