Kosovo has become a country that rewards "getting away with the crime." Kosovar leaders accused by the war crimes tribunal in The Hague, EULEX and other EU entities of war crimes, money laundering, cronyism, and the harassment of journalists have received a hero's welcome at government supported rallies upon beating the charges.
As part of its blitzkrieg campaign against corruption, EULEX promised to catch some big fish. Ten years later, not one senior Kosovar official has been indicted. The Kosovars watched as accusations of corruption against the Prime Minister's inner circle, of which Asanaj was a member, were swept under the rug or dismissed entirely by EULEX.
In April, EULEX arrested Nazmi Mustafi, the head of the Kosovo Task Force Against Corruption, on corruption charges! Mustafi is accused of demanding bribes from businesses to avoid allegations of corruption. The Task Force was part of the Special Prosecutor's Office, which was created by Prime Minister Thaçi.
