Professor Henry Perritt: Privatisation was turned upside down by Lambsdorff and Fucci
‘I want to stress another thing, when Lambsdorff came as the Head of Pillar IV he should have said that he doesn’t have a proper experience to lead this function, and not to decide to block privatisation himself,’ Perrit is further quoted as saying.
Perrit said he does not see any legal problem that would prevent moving forward and he is surprised with the checkmate position the process is in, considering the successful beginning. He believes that the more the restart of privatisation is delayed the more potential investors will lose interest in investing in Kosovo. The delay according to Perrit is explained with the fact that: ‘UNMIK does not have a leadership for economy that would speed up the economic development, or their approach is not professional…it might be influenced by politics.’
‘If the privatisation fails than this would be a failure for Kosovo, UN and all internationals here. If this happens than KTA management should be held accountable, those not doing anything should be removed from the posts,’ states Perrit in an exclusive interview for Kosova Sot.
