Head of KiM Office: We will not allow a repetition of Serb expulsion Izvor: Tanjug/Dimitrije Goll

Tens of thousands of Albanians have, led by blind hatred, burned down everything that is Serbian in Kosovo and Metohija 15 years ago on this day, and Serbia will not let that happen again, the head of Serbia’s Office for Kosovo and Metohija (KiM), Marko Djuric, said on Sunday.

Djuric said that, in only two days, 35 Serbian sanctities and several thousand Serb family homes were burnt down, that thousands of Serbs were expelled and that the main perpetrators have not faced justice even 15 years after that.

He said that back then neither KFOR nor the international community have done their job and that their passivity contributed to those events.

“They didn’t do everything necessary to prevent it and we should not forget that on March 17 (2004), Prizren, Bogorodica Ljeviska, the Devic monastery and the Prizren Serbian Orthodox Seminary were burned down and now we are rebuilding them and we are aware that there are those who still want this (those places to burn) today,” Djuric said.

Even the US State Department had condemned the developments in Kosovo and Metohija and named more than 100 incidents against Serbs, stating there was continuous violence, Djuric said.

He added that all of this is a lesson that Serbs cannot rely only on KFOR and the international community, as the responsibility partly lies with Serbia.
