Council of Europe rapporteur Dick Marty, who alleged in a recent report that Kosovo officials were involved in organ trafficking, says he did not claim that Prime Minister Thaci himself was directly involved.
Marty said that ‘if you read my report carefully, I don’t say that Mr. Thaci is implicated directly in the organ trafficking but I say that his close associates are implicated’. But Marty thinks that “It’s hard to believe that Thaci never heard about that”.
He also stressed that his report does not smear the Kosovo Liberation Army, but that abuse and crimes were committed by certain groups, which should be the target of an investigation.
Marty said that his report should not be understood as a campaign against Kosovo or Albanian society.
