In today’s meeting, the Government of Kosovo has decided to cancel the expropriation of properties for the construction of the highway Prishtina-Peja, segment Kiev-Klina-Zahaq.
In 2019, the Haradinaj Government had taken a decision on the expropriation of real estate for the construction of the Prishtina-Peja highway.
Prime Minister Albin Kurti said that after the auditor’s findings that reveal numerous violations in the expropriation process affected by the construction of this highway and in order to stop the misuse of public money, respectively for the misappropriation of 12 million euros, this decision is being annulled.
Some time ago, the Minister of Finance, Hekuran Murati, published documents in which, openly, the Haradinaj Government had increased the values of the lands that would be expropriated, where initially the expropriations in those areas would receive around 31 million euros, but later this figure has risen to 42 million euros.
