EU Kosovo mission accused of trying to silence whistleblower

The European Union’s biggest foreign mission has been accused of using its powers to try to silence a whistleblower who claims to have uncovered evidence of possible corruption.

Eulex, the foreign mission in Kosovo, is being taken to an employment tribunal by the London-based lawyer Maria Bamieh. She claims she was forced from her job as a prosecutor after exposing evidence of bribery among senior staff.

But now Bamieh and her solicitor have been formally warned by Eulex that they could be prosecuted and jailed if they disclose any details of her employment case to “non-parties,” including potential witnesses.

The prospect of criminal prosecution in Kosovo is particularly serious, given that it would be carried out by Eulex prosecutors and judges.
