Opposition to Romanian officer taking over EULEX Kosovo Special Police helm

Kosovo’s nationalistic political movement Vetevendosje (Self-determination) opposes the appointment of Romanian Gendarmerie Colonel Marian Petre as head of the EULEX Kosovo’s Special Police Department, according to local press reports quoted by Mediafax. In a letter to EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Catherine Ashton, Vetevendosje said the Romanian government that delegated Petre is responsible at the same time for the death of several peaceful protesters on February 10, 2007, during a demonstration staged by the movement.

The letter also said the Romanian government was unwilling to collaborate with the international justice system to have those responsible for the deaths deferred to justice.
