Former KIA chief: The safe was not opened

Driton Gashi, former head of the Kosovo Intelligence Agency (KIA) who was dismissed from the post after the deportation of six Turkish nationals from Kosovo in 2018, has commented on allegations that a KIA officer tried to obtain confidential information from a safe in the Kosovo President`s Office.

Gashi, who was present at the time of the alleged incident as part of then-President Thaci's staff, said there were no attempts to open the safe.

He said Vjosa Osmani's chief of staff, Faton Peci, was also present.

"The idea that the safe was opened and there was an abuse of authorizations, is a lie," he told Klan Kosova.
