Serbia reportedly obstructs Kosovo power imports

Excerpt from report by Salie Gajtani: "Kosovo in dark, Serbia blocks power from export", published by Kosovo Albanian newspaper Koha Ditore on 18 October

Prishtina [Pristina], 17 October: The evident lack of power in Kosova [Kosovo] on Sunday and Monday [ 16-17 October], which resulted in power cuts of three hours on and three hours off, was not only a consequence of the breakdown at the B2 power plant, but also a consequence of Serbia's obstacles to the system of importing electricity from the countries in the region.

The Irish management officials at the KEK [Kosova Power Corporation] have said they have decided to make public the obstacles that EPS (Elektro Priveda Srbije [Serbian Power Industry]) has been making to the power transmission system, as these obstacles affect both the import and export of power in Kosova. Serbia has also refused to pay the internationally set tariffs when it sends electricity to other countries of the region through Kosova.

KEK Commercial Director Sean McGoldrick told Koha Ditore that there are two things that the EPS has been doing wrong. "The EPS has been preventing even other neighbour countries from selling electricity to Kosova, and has been interfering in the KEK's affairs by blocking it from buying energy that is cheaper than the electricity that Serbia offers. Serbia has also been sending its electricity to Greece through Kosova, and it does not pay any tariffs for that," he said.

Meanwhile, no one from the EPS was willing to comment on these accusations under the excuse that company spokesperson Momcilo Cebalovic was not at his workplace on Monday [17 October]. Despite Koha Ditore's insistence throughout Monday to get an answer by telephone, people on the other side of the line kept saying, "Only spokesperson Cebalovic can give an answer to this question."

Officials from the Kosova Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM) have said that even though they do not manage the KEK, they will undertake all the necessary measures to resolve this problem. They also blamed the bosses of the ESBI Irish company that manages the KEK for this situation.

MEM Deputy Minister Agron Dida said the ESBI failed to make the necessary preparations on time for the import of energy. "Usually these things are done on time, and we need to have yearly strategic contracts, and not monthly, as the KEK has been doing," said Dida. "This is what the law says," he added.

Its incredible ! The Kosovo albanians want the UN out, they want independence, they want to be a free country.....and they can not even handle their fu¤¤en electricity. (Of course it is someone else fault, like always.)
Well, if I was in charge of Serbia, I would block all electricity, block all phonelines, block all old pensions, block roads and then they could stay inside their "paradise" and fight to each other and burn cd´s. Jesus christ, what loosers.
Independence ? Yes, if the week consists of 10 days !

To the Serb who knows nothing about electricity: the Balkans relies on exchange of electricity.

Serbia really is blocking electricity and refusing to pay Kosovo for transport. Soon it will be in breach of a Treaty with the EU. Then see how far EU entry will go for Serbia.

But probably the Serb doesn't care either about the rule of law or the EU.

Serbia mountaing an economic blockade on Kosova?!! Go ahead, bloc your exports. I'm sure Maecodonia, Montenegro, Slovenia, and Albania are cheering for your dummassas. This shows how desperate Mala Serbia has become. They don't pay for their fees, they don't honor their contracts. Another reason for outright independence.

On a more personal level, it's clear that you have been smoking until right before logging on. And when grass lets you down, you've got KosovaReport to make you fly. Keep it coming, we enjoy Serb hopelessness.

This blog site is a tool of Albanian nationalist extremists aimed at creating a negative image of Sebia based on manipulating facts and selective editing of existing articles. Be warned that the content on this site is largely fabricated and therefore should not be taken seriously. Sites such as this do nothing more than fuel hostility.
If you look closely at the articles, they are all Anti-Serbian. Racism is a terrible thing.

Refer back to AP/Reuters/NY Times/Koha Ditore/Kosova Live/B92/Beta for discrepancies. I'll bet your ass there isn't any.

What you see here is Serb state propaganda being overthrown with only a blog agianst it! :)

Always remember, KosovaReport takes you high.

"Negative image for serbia?" serbs have one image in the world and that is rapists who committed the srebrenica massacre.

Hahaha. The articles are posted exactly as they are written by mostly American and UK journalists. No manipulation or selective editing is necessary to make the Serbs look bad. Their pattern of murder, looting, rape, and attacks against the other countries in the Balkans is what makes them look bad.
