“Welcome back”

13 July 2009


Head of EULEX Police Component Rainer Kuehn visited Gračanica/Graçanicë police station together with the General Director for the Kosovo Police, Sheremet Ahmeti, to welcome the approximately 30 K-Serb KP police officers that returned to duty on 30 June 2009 to this particular station.

“I really honestly wish you all welcome back” said the General Director. “You are all needed in order to provide security to all citizens and if you have any problems in the future we will sit down and solve them together”

Rainer Kuehn stated that “I’m glad to see so many of you here. We are here to serve all the citizens and to do that it’s really important that Kosovo Police is a multi-ethnic police service”

Throughout Kosovo 317 out of 325 suspended officers returned to the Kosovo Police within the deadline on 30 June 2009. The returned officers will undergo some training during the next few weeks to be fully up to date with the newest developments within the service and after that they will be fully integrated into the Kosovo Police again.
