Veseli calls on KLA associations to call off protest

Leader of the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) Kadri Veseli has called on KLA war veterans` association to call off July 9 protest in support of him and President Hashim Thaci following the specialist prosecutor`s indictment for war crimes.

In a video message, Veseli said that protests are not the right thing to do at this time when Kosovo is facing a health crisis. "I don't want any life to be put into risk because of my life," Veseli said.
Meanwhile, organizers of the protest said they do not plan to cancel it.
Head of the KLA war veterans' association Hysni Gucati said the protest will go ahead as planned. "We will act as we see fit by standing in support of all former KLA soldiers," he said.
