Vitia speaks about Pacolli’s return to Kosovo

Acting Minister of Health Arben Vitia commented on the developments relating to Behgjet Pacolli’s return to Kosovo after he accused the government of denying him arrive at the Prishtina airport.

Vitia said Pacolli’s return was unnecessarily politicized and added that if he presents medical documents about his medical condition, he will be able to also self-isolate at his home and not be placed under quarantine measures at the students’ dormitory in Prishtina.

“I tried to directly speak to Mr. Pacolli as early as [yesterday] morning to explain to him what the procedures are and that there is no need to politicize the issue,” Vitia said. He added that the 14-day quarantine or self-isolation rules apply to everyone, regardless of their posts.
