BELGRADE – Marko Djuric, director of the Serbian government’s Office for Kosovo-Metohija (KiM), has said that Serbia is asking from the United Nations to establish a special international court or tribunal that would prosecute crimes committed by the terrorist Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA/UCK).


“I expect all states, and especially the UN Security Council members, to support the establishment of an international court or tribunal that would investigate the crimes committed by the KLA,” said Djuric on Friday at an extraordinary press conference.

Djuric said that he expects the UN to do its part of the job and UN member countries to support unanimously the establishment of the special court.

“In less than 24 hours after the liberation of (wartime commander of Srebrenica) Naser Orlic, the decision of the provincial parliament to deny the establishment of a special court that would be tasked with investigating the crimes committed by the KLA came as rubbing salt into the wounds of Serbian people,” said Djuric.

He said that this decision does not contribute to the process of the normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina, but that nevertheless the talks in Brussels will continue on Monday.
