The European Union's Office in Pristina said that some stipulations in the draft Law on Protecting KLA Values were not in line freedom of speech.

 "Modern democracies rely on critical scrutiny and informed debates to discuss and interpret historical events and achieve progress. The Kosovo Liberation Army is an integral part of the History of Kosovo. 

The Draft Law on the Protection of Kosovo Liberation Army's War Values, however, contains provisions which raise serious concerns as regards the right of people to have their opinion," the EU's Facebook post said.

Earlier, the US ambassador to Kosovo Phillip Kosnett said that if the draft were adopted, 'it would weaken Kosovo's democracy."
"KLA fought to widen freedoms of Kosovo people, not to limit them," he said.
