Better late than never, but why would the Serbs wait until the last minute to take some sort of action. This has been going on since 1999 and not stopped.





Kosovo Serbs break ties with UN, declare emergency


PRISTINA, Serbia: A “state of emergency” was proclaimed in Serb enclaves in northern Kosovo on Monday as the embattled minority cut relations with the UN mission (UNMIK) over a wave of ethnic violence.

“The state of emergency is proclaimed from today on the territory of four municipalities in northern Kosovo,” said Dragisa Milovic, an ethnic-Serb official in the town of Zvecan. “All contacts with Kosovo institutions, in particular with UNMIK, are now being cut off, until those who have committed numerous crimes against the Serbs are caught.”

Several thousand Serbs gathered in Zvecan to protest the violence, allegedly committed by extremists from Kosovo’s ethnic Albanian majority despite the presence of Nato peacekeepers throughout the province. In a series of attacks against Serbs in the past 10 days, one man has been killed and two have been seriously injured.

But UN police commissioner Kai Vittrup said the latest “incidents involving Kosovo Serb victims do not appear to be ethnically motivated crimes”. “At the moment, we are putting in place additional security procedures to ensure the safety of all Kosovo citizens,” Vittrup said in Pristina, the capital of the southern Serbian province which is under UN oversight.

UNMIK officials rarely describe violent attacks against Serbs as ethnically motivated crimes, citing a lack of evidence to determine a motive. Since the end of Kosovo’s 1998-1999 conflicts, some 200,000 Serbs have fled the province fearing reprisals by ethnic Albanian extremists, while the remaining roughly 100,000 live in constant fear for their lives and property.

In 1995 more than 100 Muslim fighters from Srebrenica escaped to Serbia. They were later relocated with the Red Cross assistance to Dublin,Ireland and The Hague, Netherlands. Those in Netherlands were given preferential treatment compared to other refugees and permanent immigrant status. My guess is they were used as a groomed 'protected witnesses" in The Hague circus.

For period before 1995 it is very useful to dig through internet newsgroup archives instead of web search. There is a lot of unfiltered useful information.
