Kosovo president, 9 ex-fighters indicted for war crimes

Published Wed Jun 24 2020 14:31:50 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
Kosovo’s president and nine other former separatist fighters were indicted on a range of crimes against humanity and war crimes charges, including murder, by a court investigating crimes against ethnic Serbs from Kosovo’s 1990s independence war with Serbia. The prosecutor of the Kosovo Specialist Chambers said Wednesday that President Hashim Thaci and the others suspects “are criminally responsible for nearly 100 murders” of political opponents and Kosovar Albanian, Serb and Roma victims. Other charges include enforced disappearance, persecution, and torture. Thaci's advisers did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Thaci was planning to attend a White House meeting with Serbia’s leaders on Saturday aimed at securing a peace agreement between Serbia and Kosovo.
