Prishtina, 31 January 2012 – The initiative of the Economic Development Ministry and PTK to honor our heroes of freedom with the issuance of a post stamp, is only a small duty of Kosovo’s institutions for the great deed of our martyrs, said the Economic Development Minister, Besim Beqaj.

“With this post stamp today, we sublimate the great values of Gërvalla brothers, Kadri Zeka, Zahir Pajaziti, Hakif Zejnuhallau and Edmond Hoxha, the common goal of which was Kosovo’s freedom and independence”, said Beqaj.

Acting PTK CEO, Nuredin Krasniqi, said that the release of the 77th edition of postal stamps titled “Flambeaus of Freedom” is dedicated to our heroes who sacrificed their lives for an independent Kosovo, for the freedom we enjoy today.

“Their resistance and heroic journey became a roadmap for other comrade-in-arms who held the flambeau of freedom lit, who organized, lead and open way for the institutions of freedom”, said Krasniqi.
