Coordination of Serb Associations of Missing, Murdered and Killed Persons Families in a statement delivered to the media said tomorrow would be 20 years since the killing of 14 Serb harvesters in the village of Staro Gracko, near Lipljan, Radio KIM reports. They added “the compromise and normalization of relations cannot be established with the truth and the justice.”
The Coordination warned that “no one was held responsible for this and many other crimes committed against the Serbs in an organized and systematic manner by the members of the so-called Kosovo Liberation Army.”
Special Prosecution in Pristina closed the investigation of this case in May 2017, due “to alleged lack of evidence,” the statement recalled.
