PRESIDENT JAHJAGA HANDED OVER THE ORDERS “HERO OF KOSOVO” TO THE FAMILY MEMBERS OF JUSUF AND BARDHOSH GËRVALLA

The President of the Republic of Kosovo, Mrs. Atifete Jahjaga, received today the representatives of family Gërvalla. On this occasion she handed over to the wife of Jusuf Gërvalla, Suzana Gërvalla, and to the daughter of Bardhosh Gërvalla, Mirjeta Gërvalla, the orders “Hero of Kosovo”, with which Jusuf and Bardhosh had been decorated by the Acting President, Mr. Jakup Krasniqi, in November 2010.

President Jahjaga said she is honored to meet the family members of Jusuf and Bardhosh Gërvalla, who gave their lives for the freedom and independence of Kosovo and its people.

“The intellectual and patriotic work of Jusuf and Bardhosh have ensured their name in the annals of our history. Their patriotic act, the sacrifice and death in emigration completed the notion of resistance and struggle for liberation,” said President Jahjaga.

She said that the treatment towards martyrs, despite the time, should be the same and their value and contribution should be evaluated by all.

Jusuf Gërvalla’s wife, Suzana, thanked President Jahjaga for the decorations and wished her success in performing the duty of President, and expressed the conviction that she will succeed this task in the best possible manner.
