The National Audit Office (NAO) is hereby informing the public that it is currently at the final stage of the financial and performance audit of the Radio Television of Kosovo (RTK). NAO, under the international public sector auditing standards, shall not disclose any information nor give any comments on any of the audit activities unless all stages are completed and the audit report becomes final.

In light of some news circulating on the media saying that one of the heads of department within RTK has been sacked and that one of the grounds for doing that was his failure to cooperate with the NAO, we would like to inform you that the Auditor General, Vlora Spanca, has sent a letter to the Acting Director General of RTK, Shkumbin Ahmetxhekaj. In the letter sent to him, the AG acknowledged the RTK staff for the cooperation during the audit and confirmed that the audit teams engaged to carry out the audit of RTK have not reported any concern on delayed submission of documents by the sacked officer.

Mrs. Spanca said that once the audit results are analysed, NAO shall issue the audit report wherein recommendations on the actions RTK should take will be given.

“Therefore, until the publication of reports, I would kindly ask you to refrain from involving NAO in any internal decision making of yours,” the Auditor General, Vlora Spanca, said in her letter sent to Mr. Ahmetxhekaj.
