The British to eliminate SHIK and SIA? (Express)

Express reports on page three that a team of security and intelligence services professionals from Great Britain are staying in Kosovo since April 11th. The Security Sector Development Advisory Team (SSDAT) has arrived in Kosovo following an invitation by SRSG Søren Jessen-Petersen. Their mission is to organize a long-term strategy for internal security in Kosovo. In their suggestions they say that even after the eventual independence of Kosovo the latter cannot have an independent intelligence service.

‘With the proposal to create a united intelligence service in Kosovo, the British Ministry of Defence plans to end the war between local rivals,’ says the front-page caption of the article.
