Also in Priština, EULEX spokesman Christophe Lamfalussy confirmed that Marty is in Kosovo and that we will be meeting with EULEX officials and officials of other organizations.

Kosovo government spokesperson Memli Krasniqi said that the Kosovo prime minister does not have a scheduled meeting with Marty in the coming two days.

The newspaper that Marty “could be meeting with officials of the Kosovo Justice Ministry”.

But this ministry stated that its minister does not have a meeting scheduled with Marty either.

Marty was in Belgrade two months ago, where he met with Serbian officials about the suspicions regarding the kidnappings of Serbs and other non-Albanians and human trafficking activity, in a case investigated by the Serbian War Crimes Prosecution, and known informally as the Yellow House.
