Kosnett: Not the laws but politics is the problem of corruption

Philip Kosnett, U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo, took to Twitter to write that he heard at the Prime Minister’s High-Level Rule of Law meeting, the assurances that Kosovo has the laws and resources it needs to fight corruption and implement equal justice for all citizens, without special treatment for the well-connected. 

“But the problem is not the law, the problem is politics. Americans speak out because of our commitment to Kosovo’s future. Do Kosovo’s leaders have the political will to turn words to action and stop meddling in hiring and judiciary processes? Do Kosovo’s citizens believe in Kosovo’s democracy enough to demand action? By the way, who’s missing from these photos? Kosovo succeeds when women lead,” Kosnett wrote.
