Kosovo president says Serbia should be held accountable for Recak Massacre
Kosovo president Hashim Thaci has paid
homages at the memorial dedicated to 45 Albanian civilians killed on 15 January
1999 in the village of Recak by Serbian police and military.
The massacre against Albanian civilians is
considered as one of the bloodiest and a turning point for international
community to intervene prompting NATO’s intervention against Serbian military
and police forces to stop ethnic cleansing in Kosovo.
“The Recak Massacre was a crime against
humanity and genocide. Serbia should be held accountable, Justice will prevail
sooner or later,” Thaci said condemning the inaction of international community
to bring those responsible for this massacre before justice.
Thaci paid homages at the Recak memorial accompanied
by Albanian president Ilir Meta who said that every attempt to deny this
massacre, or any other massacre in the region poses threat of provoking recycle
Kosovo institutions held a commemoration
meeting in Pristina marking 21th anniversary of the massacre. On 15 January
1999, 45 Albanian civilians were brutally killed and massacred, including old
men, women and children. /GazetaExpress/
