EULEX has donated forty vehicles to the Ministry of Finance. The total value of the vehicles is seventy-four thousand Euros. These vehicles will be used by Kosovo Customs and the Kosovo Tax Administration.
During the handover ceremony of the vehicles, the EULEX Head of Mission, Xavier de Marnhac, said EULEX was in Kosovo to support rule of law institutions. He expressed his hope that this donation would increase the capacity of Kosovo Customs and the Kosovo Tax Administration to fulfill their duties.
The Minister of Finance Bedri Hamza thanked EULEX for their help and support. He said that this donation would contribute to the more efficient work of these two institutions.
This handover follows a previous donation of twenty-three vehicles to the Ministry of Justice in March 2012. More EULEX donations are expected, such as a handover of sixty vehicles to the Kosovo Police.
