"There will be resignations, dismissals, and criminal responsibility"

Kosovo’s Minister of Justice, Albulena Haxhiu, said today about the killing of a pregnant woman by her husband in front of the maternity hospital in Prishtina, that if it is confirmed any of the sectors of the system failed, there will be resignations, dismissals, and even criminal responsibility. 

After the inter-ministerial meeting, Haxhiu accused the prosecution because the suspect had been released earlier.

“Two women killed by their husbands in two days. We have discussed inter-institutional actions and according to information from the police, in July this year the victim had reported the suspect for mental and physical violence and the prosecution released him in the regular procedure. This is irresponsibility from the institution and the prosecutor of the case because we are continuously calling for the protection of women and girls,” she said.
