After the statement by EU Ambassador Orav, and like Commissioner Johannes Hahn, Peter Vanhoutte also received threats and because of this new development, they must increase their security. The Belgian facilitator says that the threats to his safety are second on his agenda.

“For me, the threats to my security come second, after the interests of the citizens. The need for the urgent implementation of the reform priorities, and the need for a formal agreement between the parties relating to elections and election day are my main priority”, said Mr Vanhoutte.
