Jessen-Petersen promises Kosumi competencies in justice and police (dailies)

In the meeting between SRSG Søren Jessen-Petersen and newly appointed Kosovo Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi, Jessen-Petersen announced that more competencies in the field of justice and police are to be handed over to Kosovo authorities.

‘We, at UNMIK, are working on a draft for transfer of competencies in justice and police and we expect to present this plan to the Government by April’, said Jessen-Petersen. ‘This is the last part of the most important fields where competencies should be transferred’, added UNMIK chief.

In the first meeting with SRSG since assuming the post, PM Bajram Kosumi welcomed the news and said that he hopes Kosovo will very soon have two new ministries, that of justice and internal affairs.
