Tërmkolli to UNMIK: Dismantle the parallel structures in Kosovo

Koha Ditore covers the meeting of the working group of the second Standard – rule of law in Kosovo, and reports that the head of the group, Public Services Minister Melihate Tërmkolli, considers that parallel structures are the main obstacle to the rule of law in Kosovo.

Tërmkolli has called on the UNMIK-led Department of Justice to take urgent measures in dissolving the parallel structures in Kosovo. “Functioning of parallel courts is seriously hindering the implementation of the second Standard – rule of law in Kosovo,” she said according to the paper.

It's funny that when the ethnic albanians set up parallel structures in kosovo it was for survival, when the Serbs do the exact same thing it is an obstacle to the rule of law. Total Hypocrisy!!!!!!

Yes cause we don't go over to the Serbs telling them not to speak their language, close their TV/news outlets (which they have and will continue to have).

And my all time favorite, we setup those paralel structures cause Serbs kicked each and everyone of us out of jobs, took our homes (in some cases), expelled us from Kosova, or just decided to play "Shoot the Albanian".

So yeah, hypocrisy from your part, either we build a Kosova together (note the word together, not alone), or continue to live in your little aquariums, but pay rent and the bills.

In the end Kosovo will be partioned you will see. By the way a bulgarian soldier was murdered in kosovo for answering an albanian in serbian. so much for your theory of allowing free speech.

Everyone knows that parallel structures are encouraged and enforced by Belgrade in order to have bargaining chips during decentralization. These structures are not survival mechanisms but rather political statements attached to violent instruments.
The fact of the matter is that in areas where Serbs have trusted their neighbhors and have agreed to coexistence life for the Serbs has been much better. Anamorava and Klina are two beautiful examples of this. For Belgrade the worse it gets, the better. However this is a risky game from the K-Serb perspective because basically all most of them have is in Kosovo and the alternative of such risky maneuvers are refugee camps in Serbia.

Not unless Serbia doesn't recognize the border between Serbia and the northern administrative border of kosovo. Then the Ibar River actually becomes the southern border for K-Serbs and their northern border would be in Subotica along the hungarian border

This works only in small villages and even then only in some. The problem is that Albanians tend to cover their fellow Albanians no matter what they do against Serbs and other minorities. As in a city there are always some trouble makers this makes life very difficult for the minorities.

Serbia doesn't really have a choice in the matter. I seem to remember 40,000 NATO troops made that the case.

That was 6 years and billions of dollars ago, The United States cannot afford nation building anymore. So I wouldn't count on them for help in the future.

" So I wouldn't count on them for help in the future."

Do I sense some nostalgia for good old Milosevic days? Maybe we cannot count on USA but can we count on Serbs not acting out their murderous habbits and supremacists ideas?

If you say, yes you can count on Serbs acting civilized, then we can rejoice. But I fear, as most Serbs here are showing, that is not the case. They are stil bent on war and harm to other nationalities.

Maybe nation building is not an option, but this country is a threat not to Kosova, but to all around, even Brussels.
