“The competence to address war crimes belonged to UNMIK, then EULEX and then local institutions. In order for the special prosecution to have time to deal with these cases, it is important to change the procedure in this law. So far there has been no serious treatment of war crimes. Lack of political will has caused this to affect the will of institutions. We will process the new Code of Criminal Procedure within two months “, declared Haxhiu. / Voice
