Current Kosovo PM Hashim Thaci should step down to garantee the credibility of Kosovo as a fully independent state, if only to pursue dialogue with the EU as well as with Belgrade: to analyst Michael Emerson, there are several legal options available to follow-up on the Dick Marty's Memorandum accusing Prime Minister and others of running a criminal mafia and of engaging in organ trafficking. Emerson explores the different options available, such as the ICTY cooperating with EULEX to instigate investigation on the alleged crimes, while underlining that EU could take political stand and push for a Mr. Clean, a non-controversial political figure, to head Kosovo. Michael Emerson is Senior Research Fellow and head of the EU Foreign, Security and Neighbourhood Policies research programme at CEPS.
