The United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo or UNMIK is the officially mandated mission of the United Nations in Kosovo. The UNMIK Human Rights Advisory Panel published recently a decision showing the failure of UNMIK to investigate the systematic killings of Serbs and other non-Albanians killed by Kosovo Albanian armed groups and by the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) after the armed conflict (1998/1999) between the Serbian forces on one side and the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). Here is a short quotation of the UNMIK’s decision:
The majority of Kosovo Albanians who had fled, or had been forcibly expelled from their houses by the Serbian forces during the conflict, returned to Kosovo… Whereas most Kosovo Serbs and other non-Albanians fled to Serbia proper and the neighbouring countries, those remaining behind became victims of systematic killings, abductions, arbitrary detentions, sexual and gender based violence, beatings and harassment.
Yes, that’s it. Kosovo Albanians returned peacefully to their home in Kosovo while more than 6000 Kosovo Serbs were killed after the war between June 1999 and December 2000, and KLA killers of Serbs in Kosovo were never investigated… No justice for Serbian survivors of the KLA atrocities and to the families of victims. No justice for the Serbs, it’s outrageous.
P.S. Hashim Thaçi, the current Prime Minister of the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo, was one of the commanders of the Kosovo Liberation Army KLA when the killings of Serbs and other non-Albanians occurred, but he was never indicted by the Hague Tribunal nor by the UNMIK.
