The Vienna-based South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) was troubled by ongoing threats against a Kosovo journalist by self-professed former militants and it called on authorities in Pristina to hold the perpetrators accountable.

Local sources told SEEMO that Serbeze Haxhiaj, a journalist with public radio Radio Kosova, part of Radio Television of Kosovo (RTK) in Pristina, has received a number of threats starting late last month from individuals who identified themselves as former superior officers in the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) / Ushtria Çlirimtare e Kosovës (UCK).

The threats followed Haxhiaj’s investigation into the large number of veterans who claim to have fought for the KLA during the conflict in 1999.
The number of names on a contemporary list of war veterans has been criticised as being unrealistically high.
