Prosecutor on further steps in organ trade case. EU does not want new Cyprus. Progressives mull dismisssng some ambassadors.
Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic says that further steps in the investigation of the human organ trafficking in Kosovo have been agreed with Clint Williamson, head of the EULEX Special Investigative Task Force.
“In some parts of the investigation we will act together, help each other in order to put the pieces of the puzzle together,” the prosecutor said.
On the margins of the EPP Congress, the leading political force in the EU, attended by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Prime Ministers of Hungary, Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Portugal and Slovenia and diplomacy chiefs it was said that Brussels ‘wants to see normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina through a dialog’. Another message sent to the delegation from Belgrade was that the European community ‘wants Serbia in the EU’ but that ‘there are expectations that Serbia has to fulfill and they do not refer to Kosovo only’.
The ruling Progressives are not satisfied with Serbian diplomacy and are supposed to review the work of current Serbian ambassadors and then introduce some changes.
In two high-profile war crimes trials currently ongoing in Pristina, a series of witnesses have retracted previous statements alleging abuse at Kosovo Liberation Army detention centres.
