Kurti reacts to Liridona's murder: Arrest alone is not enough
The Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, spoke at a conference about the case of the murder of Liridona Ademaj and the kidnapping and murder of the 14-year-old in Skopje.
Kurti said that both events have burdened the minds and hearts of everyone, adding that only the arrest is not enough.
"The recent murders, the ordered murder of Liridona Ademaj by her husband and the kidnapping and murder of the 14-year-old in Skopje, have weighed on our minds and hearts. The orderers and perpetrators of the Liridona case have been arrested and put behind bars. The vigilant police, as ever, are acting quickly and with high efficiency. But arrest alone is not enough. Because they know that there are similar and not few cases, when criminals are released and the crimes are repeated even worse than the first time. We need the entire justice system to prioritize cases of violence against girls and women. We have no way of saying that meritorious punishment is needed. The leniency of the sentence is causing the repetition of the crime. Justice is a necessary condition for a free and democratic society and what we aspire to remain forever", said Kurti.
