EULEX hands war crimes cases to Kosovo courts

EULEX hands war crimes cases to Kosovo courts Izvor: N1

Courts in Kosovo have started taking war crimes cases from the EULEX mission, the Belgrade-based FoNet news agency reported on Monday.

The courts will process crimes committed by the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) against Serbs and other non-Albanian civilians and crimes committed by Serbs over Albanians.  

Serbia’s PM Ana Brnabic said she did not expect anything good from Kosovo courts after they took over the war crimes cases from EULEX, "as long as Pristina leaders deny human rights to the Serbs.”

 The problem facing the courts is that many of the Serbs suspected of having committed crimes live in Serbia proper which makes investigations more difficult, Radio Free Europe (RFE) reported.

RFE added the authorities in Pristina had been lobbying to have war crimes cases transferred to local courts since the Kosovo court war crimes section started operating.
