BELGRADE (Reuters) -- Serbian investigators have detained nine former paramilitaries in an investigation of war crimes during the 1998-99 war in Kosovo, a sign of government resolve to deal with Serbia's wartime past as the country aims for EU membership, an official said.
Prosecuting atrocities committed by Serbs in the 1990s during a series of wars in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, and Kosovo, Serbia's former southern province, is a major precondition for Belgrade to speed up its bid to join the European Union.
"Nine men were taken for questioning over the killing of 41 of Kosovo Albanian civilians in Kosovo's village of Cuska on May 14, 1999," said Bruno Vekaric, a spokesman for Serbia's office of the war crimes prosecutor. "Another two remain at large."
Vekaric said the suspects had served as members of a paramilitary unit known as The Jackals that fought alongside Serbian security forces in Kosovo during the 1998-99 war there.
"We are also investigating the role of a total of 26 people, paramilitaries, reservists from the so-called territorial defense forces and reserve police troops during the Kosovo war and some of them are in other countries," Vekaric said.
Thousands died during the Kosovo war and hundreds of thousands fled their homes. The conflict ended with the 1999 NATO bombing that forced Serbia to end its crackdown on independence-seeking ethnic Albanians. Kosovo seceded from Serbia in 2008.
We should have assisted Milosevic in exterminating those followers of MohamMad still residing in the Balkans.
Serbs are certainly not pure as the driven snow, but if Serbia was to be dismantled and put under the UN boot for committing alleged atrocities then by their own rules there should be no more Germany for ending tens of millions of lives and causing countless destruction only 65 years ago.
Maybe you can tell why the Serbs, who obviously have a beef with NATO - focus on the US rather than Europe. Especially since it is the EU that they are trying to join with.
