Haxhiu slams media and civil society`s response to leaked wiretaps

Kosovo`s Justice Minister Albulena Haxhiu called a press conference yesterday to speak about the recently leaked wiretaps where a few justice system officials are implicated.

She said it is shocking how little outcry there was in the wake of the recordings on the part of the media, civil society, and justice institutions that ought to be looking into allegations raised from the files.
Haxhiu, who cut short her maternity leave to speak to reporters, said that the recordings prove how important the judicial vetting process is and that it is unacceptable for only the Government of Kosovo to be reacting to this affair. "I call on the Judicial Council and the Prosecutorial Council to urgently take steps in this direction and investigate all those persons that undermine the integrity of judicial institutions," she said
