Headlining with "Stateless Arigona," Falter reportson the outcome of a high-profile legal battle that will now result in the deportation of Arigona Zogaj and other members of her family. The Viennese weekly is concerned about adverse conditions that will be faced by the young Kosovan who has been in Austria since 2002. Kosovo has neither the financial resources nor the necessary civil service personnel to cope with the 6,500 refugees returning to the country every year. Falter points out that Kosovans who are sent home have little hope of finding work, and will not benefit from any form of state aid. With 50% unemployment in the country, most of them will face the life of poverty endured by "half of Kosovo’s two million citizens who are living on 1.40 euro per day."
