Missing Persons Resource Centre organised a roundtable today on the topic of missing persons and challenges regarding the identification process. Head of the centre, Bajram Qerkinaj said that the fact that unidentified human remains are still in morgue facilities is very concerning. He said the issue of missing persons is very sensitive and has been neglected by institutions. “We know that there is a high number of cases of misidentification or classic burial in municipalities. There are remains already identified and not handed over to families and there are also remains from World War II. It is very strange why they are not being returned to the families,” Qerkinaj is quoted by Kosovapress. At the same time, Jahja Lluka from the government commission on missing persons, said that issue is facing many problems and the government of Kosovo cannot alone resolve it. He also accused EULEX of not doing enough. “We are a country and we need to take over competencies,” Lluka said adding that the issue of missing persons is a priority for the government and will be among the topics discussed within the Pristina-Belgrade dialogue.
