Turkish citizen Ugur Toksoy has been granted asylum in Kosovo, following an extradition request to Turkey for alleged ties to the Gulen movement.
The number of Kosovars seeking asylum decreased last year, similarly to other countries in the region, but Albania continues to be a concern with over 20,000 applicants in the past year.
Despite reports of packed migrant buses, Kosovo police say they are unaware of any fresh mass movement of asylum-seekers to Western Europe.
Hundreds of trafficked Albanian minors seek asylum in Great Britain, but their hopes for a better future are clouded by real chances of becoming victims of modern slavery.
Ragip Mustafa, the brother of Isa Mustafa, explained to local media on Tuesday that although he did ask for asylum, he is also a Bulgarian citizen and went to Germany legally.
