KWN Reacts against the Draft Law on Amnesty

Kosova Women’s Network (KWN) reacts against the draft law on amnesty and urges members of the Assembly of Republic of Kosova not to vote this draft law, since it intends to provide amnesty for a huge number of criminal offenses.
Hiding behind the First Agreement for Normalization of Relations between Kosova and Serbia, signed by Prime ministers Thaçi and Daçiç, the Government and the Assembly of the Republic of Kosova by means of this law are also forgiving a series of criminal acts endangering the rule of law in Kosova.

Among other things, in this law, there is amnesty for criminal offenses which violates human rights and freedoms including minor body injuries which in most prosecuted or sentenced cases associate with cases of domestic violence, the usurpation of property and a number of penal offenses that have been committed for individual benefits.

The emergency of proceeding this law to a vote from the government and the Assembly of Kosovo, discourages Kosova citizens to be in being active for the good of their country.

Also the content of this draft law pardons crime and hits the worst numerous Kosova citizens that for the last decades have worked hard and with honor to build a functional and legal state of Kosova.

Therefore, KWN requires from the Assembly of Kosova to not vote the law and to return it for revision so there a law with humanitarian purposes, and not criminal ones can be drafted.
