The Head of Mission Yves de Kermabon together with the Head of EULEX’s Police Component Udo Möller have visited Dragash/Dragaš Kosovo as part of their continuing outreach activties.
Their first stop was a visit to the Dragash/Dragaš Municipality where they held talks with the local authorities.
The Mayor Salim Jenuzi gave an overview on the region underlining the area’s multiethnic character which is unique to Kosovo. “In general the situation here is calm thanks to the local population. Relations between different communities living here are good. Their co-operation with the municipality and also the police is based on mutual respect.”
Yves de Kermabon and Udo Möller also met with Gëzim Berisha, the commander of the local police station.
The commander said EULEX police and the local police worked well together. “But despite the relative calm and peaceful situation here,” he added, “ There are some areas where the police has to increase its efficiency especially in community policing.
