HLC Issues Statement Criticizing PM and TMK Commander

The Humanitarian Law Centre released a statement critizing PM Agim Ceku's visitation of convicted war criminal Selim Krasniqi after the 10 August conviction for war crimes.  Ceku reportedly also made a public statement that "Kosovo needs men like Selim Krasniqi".  The Centre also warned TMK commanding officer, Sulejman Selimi, that his visit to the convicted war criminals showed that the organization supported its members who were convicted of war crimes and does not contribute to the process of building democratic institutions.
