Top Channel TV
The son of Prime Minister Sali Berisha, Shkelzen Berisha, has filed a
lawsuit against the “Zeri” newspaper in Prishtina, claiming 100 EUR for
moral damage over slander.
Shkelzen Berisha’s lawyers
say that the lawsuit was filed against the newspaper, the chief editor
Astrit Gashi and journalist Enis Veliu. Besides moral and financial
compensation, they demand the removal of the article from the Zeri web
On 16 April 2012, “Zeri” published an article titled
“Berisha with the Serbian mafia against Kosovo”, speaking about a
meeting of the Prime Minister’s son with the Serbian businessman, Vuk
Hamovic, one of the richest people in Balkan, together with Damir
The newspaper says that the Serbian businessmen have
paid the Albanian high instances to stop the construction of the power
line between Kosovo and Albania, so that Serbia can guarantee the power
supply of Kosovo, since it can import electric power only from Serbia.
Board of Written Medias had rejected Berisha’s request in June, who had
asked the newspaper to deny his meeting with the businessmen.
“Zeri” newspaper says that they own facts and evidence that prove everything written on the article of 16 April 2012.
