Statement by the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of UNMIK, Zahir Tanin, Condemning Recent Threats of Ethnic Cleansing

This weekend’s statement by a senior Kosovo Parliamentarian, using hate speech to threaten ethnic cleansing, is unacceptable, and a cause for serious concern. I call on all responsible leaders to condemn this statement, and on the judicial authorities to undertake the necessary investigation of this incident and take appropriate action in accordance with Kosovo law.
