Saturday marks the 21st anniversary of the murder of Serb youths at the Panda Cafe in Pec, Kosovo, and according to Serbian officials, there are no new leads in the case.
Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said those in charge were doing their jobs and that it was difficult to solve crimes that no one had solved for 20 years.
Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic said at a joint press conference that Kosovo was under the jurisdiction of KFOR, EULEX and UNMIK, and that he would like to hear what they have discovered.
"They have the responsibility to investigate such serious crimes, and they are obliged to do so under UN Security Council resolutions, and the EULEX is committed to that. We are ready to provide assistance, but unfortunately, it is generally unacceptable to involve our state authorities, as well as in the case of the murder of Oliver Ivanovic," Stefanovic said.
Labor, Employment, Welfare and Veterans Affairs Minister Zoran Djordjevic said the crime in the Panda café was committed by Albanian separatists who, back then, wanted to provoke the events of today, in Kosovo.
The head of the Association of Kidnapped and Killed individuals in Kosovo, Simo Spasic, called on the War Crimes Prosecutor's Office and the Organized Crime Prosecutor's Office for not revealing who the killers were and why they did not appear at today's rally to tell the families who the culprit was.
Twentyone years ago, high school students Ivan Obradovic, Zoran Stanojevic, Svetislav Ristic, Dragan Trifovic and Vukosav Gvozdenovic and university student Ivan Radovic were killed in the Panda Cafe in Peja. Some Belgrade media reported that Serbia's State Security was responsible for the crime.
