Kosovo rejects Hashim Thaci organ-trafficking claims


The Kosovo government has reacted angrily to a draft report alleging that serving leaders are responsible for crimes including organ-trafficking.

The Council of Europe report names the Hashim Thaci, Kosovo's prime minister 27 times. Kosovo's authorities reject the claims as "baseless and defamatory".

The draft report is the result of a two-year investigation by Dick Marty, the special rapporteur of the Council of Europe.

The European Union's police and justice mission in Kosovo said it would look carefully at its findings.

Nik Gowing spoke to Dr Muhamet Hamiti, the ambassador of the Republic of Kosovo to the UK about the allegations in the report.

The Hub with Nik Gowing is broadcast Monday to Fridays at 1600, 1630 and 1700 GMT on BBC World News. Find out more information about regional broadcast times here.
