The Kosovo Women’s Network expresses its concern that another case of the murder of a woman is suspected to be femicide.

After the news about the arrest of the husband of the victim Liridona Murseli, killed on November 29 in the village of Sinidoll, near Pristina, the Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN) demands that the investigation of this case be treated with urgency and a fair approach to clarify this tragedy.

KWN requests from the institutions that the case be classified as ‘Serious Murder’ and that the perpetrators be sentenced in accordance with the Criminal Code of the Republic of Kosovo.

We urge the Center for Social Work to commit to ensuring the well-being of children. KWN demands an exhaustive investigation of this case, pursuing every piece of evidence, and also calls for the maximum punishment for the accused. Additionally, KWN will monitor the institutional response to this case and to all incidents of gender-based violence.

KWN remains open to cooperation and assistance for victims of gender-based violence through the provision of free legal counseling and referrals to relevant institutions. If you require free legal assistance in cases of gender-based violence or know someone who does, please contact us at the following number: 048 105 800.”
