Lawyer Nebojsa Vlajic assessed the fact that Kosovo courts would over war crimes cases from EULEX “would be painful and difficult” for Serbs, BETA news agency reported.
He noted that from now on they would need to prove their innocence before the people incapable of making right decisions. “Only Basic Court in Pristina is in charge of the war crimes cases, and all judges there are Albanians. It would not be possible to have trials in Mitrovica North, where there are judges who are Serbs,” Vlajic explained.
He added indictments are secret due to political reasons, although the courts would say it is so due to practical reasons.
Asked if it is true that EULEX is not having trials for months, Vlajic said the change of EULEX mandate occurred in June last year and since then they are having a monitoring function only “which is insignificant.”
Vlajic also said there are 11 indictments at the moment, but one could expect many more.
