Prishtina, 20 March 2019 – The Ministry of European Integration clarifies that the interview of Minister Dhurata Hoxha for the portal “arbresh.info” in December 2016 and published on 2 January 2017 in the same portal, was given when Minister Hoxha was holding the post of Minister of Justice.
During the last month, the “researchers”, with all their efforts, were trying to find something “negative” against the Minister, and they “found” one by misusing the technical error of the Communication Office, distorting the time of publication, the character and the motive of the interview.
The Ministry of Integration has not promoted interviews that go beyond the mandate and mission of the Minister of Integration. The interview of 02.01.2017 was incorrectly published on the website of the Ministry of Integration on 8.2.2018. Minister Hoxha has never been aware that this interview was published!
This nonpolitical, New Year’s interview for arbresh.info has been on the web site since February 2018 and so far has not been a “topic of interest”.
The interviews of Minister Hoxha related to the work of the Ministry are initially published on the website of the Ministry of Justice and later on the website of the Ministry of Integration. For the sake of law enforcement and transparency, publication of news and interviews is a common practice and hundreds of such can be found at any time.
The Ministry of European Integration has been transparent and has always provided access to the media, serving the citizens in accordance with the law, while for this technical error will be undertaken measures accordingly.
