Daily Trip Report - July 30, 2003

Jill Wechsler -

First thing in the morning, I went to the KTA to get information about the first round of privatization. I met briefly with a man named Arten (I don't have his card with me right now), and he gave me a list of winning bidders and the prices they are paying.

Next I met Liridon so I could drag him around to translate.

We went to the UNMIK public information office to get any new regulations that have been issued. We didn't get to go past the receptionist for the whole complex, but she put us on the phone with the public information office. They intern put us on the phone with the legal affairs office. The legal affairs office says that no new regulations have been passed since June 27.

Next we went to the NGO registration office. The office accepted our application, but the woman said that she doesn't know how she would go about registering it without a Pristina address. She didn't seem concerned that there was no PERSON from Pristina associated with it, so maybe we can just put down some place. Also, they want us to fax them a copy of Tim's photo ID. Then we have to wait 60 days for approval.

Next we went to the district court to try to find information about the conviction of Remi and the other Albanians a week and a half ago. The guard did not allow us inside, and he said that there is no one there who gives public information and no one who would talk to us. So, we then went to the building where the international judges had actually heard the case. Again, we were not allowed inside, this time because we didn't come with the name of a person who would talk to us. The guard and several other people who were around told us that there is no one there who gives public information, and no one who would talk with us.

Then Liridon went to class and I went to ABA CEELI. I spoke with Wendy for a few minutes. I told her that I had met with Bejtush Isufi and spoken with Luan about ICON's projects, and I am fairly convinced that our business clinic does not overlap too much. We also spoke about her view of the successes and shortcomings of the exchange program, and she expressed hope that Chicago-Kent will continue to work in Kosovo. She also said that she would e-mail one of the international judges from the Remi case to see if she could get her hands on the written opinion or other information.

Then I went back to Valza's to get my bags and left for the airport.

And that's all, folks! There is of course, much more that I could say, but I will leave that for another time.
