Kosovo’s head of state Hashim Thaci said on Tuesday that besides the issue of missing people, the murder of Bytyqi brothers, Kosovo Albanian US citizens, was mentioned in many meetings with the international representatives, N1 reported.

Thaci met with Ilir Bytyqi, the brother of Ylli, Agron, and Mehmet who were killed “execution style” after being taken from jail by a Serbian police special operations unit in 1999 by the end of the Kosovo war.

Their remains were discovered two years later in Serbia’s eastern village of Petrovo Selo.

“We have recently discussed the issue with the US senators and congressmen who did a great deal in increasing pressure on Serbia. The Bytyqi brothers murderers' names are known, and they hold high positions in Serbia’s institutions,” Thaci said after the meeting with Ilir Bytyqi.

Bytyqi thanked Thaci for his efforts to find the perpetrators.

A bi-partisan US Congress delegation demanded last week the arrest of former senior Serbia's police officer Goran Radosavljevic aka Guri over the killing of Bytyqi brothers.

The delegation met with President Aleksandar Vucic during the last security conference in Munich to demand Radosavljevic’s arrest and extradition.

The former police general and founder of the Serbian Gendarmerie has been accused of involvement in the killing of the Bytyqi brothers. He was never indicted for the crime but was banned from entering the US.

An unnamed source told the Belgrade Blic newspaper the meeting was a difficult one with the Americans insisting more on the Bytyqi case than on Kosovo.

The source said Vucic told the congressional delegation, which included Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Elliot Engel, who Blic said was a prominent Albanian lobbyist, that evidence has to be produced for an arrest instead of media stories and speculation.
