The Basic Prosecution of Peja has announced today that they are investigating two cases of death in this municipality, if they are related to the mass poisoning that is suspected to have affected about 1000 citizens.

Analyzes are being carried out and tomorrow I will visit the company to see its work closely. “If there is an omission, we as the minister will take measures to prevent it from happening in the future”, she said.
MP Shala has asked the Minister of Economy about a water plant in the north of the country, which says it is supplied by Lake Ujman, but does not bill anything.
“Do you have information that a factory supplies a large part of the north, is supplied by Lake Ujman and does not bill. “A water factory in Zubin Potok that is supplying the northern part, where it is carrying out the analyzes”, Shala asked.

“There we face problems inherited and traced for 20 years. I can tell you that we will do our best for the situation with the water supply to be treated and to have an equal supply. This is a very complex problem which I do not believe should be a topic of discussion for today “, stressed Minister Rizvanolli.
