The ‘Mothers of Srebrenica and Zepa Enclaves’ association asked the President of the President of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals, Carmel Agius, to inform the UN Security Council about recent statements by Serbia's Foreign Minister, Ivica Dacic, arguing that he threatened "anybody who considers talking about the existence of mass graves” on Serbian territory.

“After we informed you about the shameless attacks on protected witnesses in war crimes cases, which were publicly announced by the Centre for Research of War, War Crimes and the Search for Missing Persons of Republika Srpska, Milorad Kojic, an interview with the Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic appeared in public in which he, in a shameless way, puts a target on the head of everyone in Serbia who would speak about the existence of mass graves of Albanians on the Serbian territory,“ the letter said.

„For many years now, we have reasonably been suspecting that there are mass graves on the territory of Serbia that contain the remains of Croats, Bosniaks and Albanians, and Ivica Dacic in this way confirmed our suspicions and indirectly threatened everyone who dares to speak about it that they will be persecuted by the state apparatus that Dacic represents,” they wrote.

In their letter, members of the association asked Agius to inform the UN Security Council of „Serbia’s unscrupulous attacks on anyone who considers talking about the existence of mass graves on its territory.“
