Chairman of the Serbian National Assembly Committee for Kosovo and Metohija, Milovan Drecun said Albanians are not ready to take part in the process of finding out who were the perpetrators of the most serious crimes, Tanjug news agency reported.
According to Drecun their aim is to make the investigations difficult, conceal the evidence and prevent finding of the truth.
Drecun made these remarks in relation to the decision of Pristina authorities to refuse to handover mortal remains in Pristina of the seven members of the Serb families Sutkovic and Petkovic killed in 1999 in Djakovica. Pristina authorities instead want to handover the mortal remains to the families at the administrative crossing point with Montenegro.
Drecun further told RTS this is yet another attempt to conceal this crime that was discovered after the trial of Ramush Haradinaj in the Hague when he was acquitted, and it heavily implicates him because it took place in his zone of responsibility.
“If you forcibly take somebody out of the house, the entire five-member family, then it must be seen, who did it, who kept them in an illegal detention and who carried out the cruel execution,” Drecun said.
According to him, Albanians for years and decades are preventing all of us to find the truth, not only for the Serb victims, but also for the Albanians who were victims of the KLA misdeeds. Drecun noted that the highest number of Serbs was killed in Djakovica, but that Albanians were killed as well by KLA and Haradinaj.
Commenting on the upcoming Kosovo elections, scheduled to take part on October 6, Drecun said that following the meeting of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo the things are much clearer and Pacoli’s statement (about the tariffs) is a result of the information that Washington would no longer apply “elastic approach” that enabled Pristina earlier to manipulate and move within it. Drecun opined that after the Kosovo elections, all obstacles to the dialogue must be removed, and the tariffs are the crucial obstacle.
He emphasized that the US entered the process of normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina with an ambition to bring it to the end and would no longer tolerate side blows or slaps that Haradinaj used to make.
