Pristina, 22 Apr (Tanjug) - The coalition Povratak is strongly opposed to the ethnic Albanian idea to reintroduce in the parliamentary procedure the initiative for adopting a resolution on the protection of the fight of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), Povratak whip in the Kosovo parliament Dragisa Krstovic said Tuesday.

Krstovic said that the Serb deputies are opposed, even in combination with the international community, to the "legalization of the KLA war, because KLA members are responsible for the murder and kidnapping of several thousands Serbs and the expulsion of 230,000 Serbs."


Ivanovic Hopes Parliaments Will Reject Resolution

Kosovo parliament presidency member Oliver Ivanovic on Tuesday expressed hope that the provincial parliament would once again refuse to adopt a new resolution on the protection of the fight of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).

Ivanovic set out that it is unacceptable for someone to once again try to protect the struggle of the KLA at the moment when the UNMIK chief is declaring its remnants, the so-called Albanian National Army, as terrorists.

BELGRADE -- Tuesday – The Coordination Centre for Southern Serbia has confirmed that KFOR have arrested Shefqet Musliu, a member of the disbanded illegal Liberation Army of Preseveo, Bujanovac and Medvedja.

The capture follows the issuing of an Interpol warrant for the arrest of militant Musliu on charges of assault, extortion and illegal possession of arms.

The Coordination Centre also confirmed that Beshim Tahiri, a member of Musliu’s ‘unit’, was arrested in Bulgaria a few days ago.

Serbian police and international forces are continuing to search for a third member, Lirim Jakupi, who is believed to be hiding in Albania or elsewhere in the region.

Musliu is alleged to have incited unrest among Albanians in southern Serbia by pressuring them with intimidation, threats and harassment to join the Liberation Army.

BELGRADE - On the basis of an international arrest warrant put up against four members of the terrorist organization, the Albanian National Army, the Bulgarian authorities arrested one member of this illegal formation, the official of the state Coordination centre for Kosmet, Vladimir Bozovic, stated. He did not wish to list the names of the arrested terrorists, though he added that the authorities in Sofia would soon hand them over to Serbia and Montenegro. The Coordination Centre announced tonight that the KFOR forces in Kosmet arrested Sefcet Musliu and Besim Tahiri, who are also on the international arrest warrant.

OTHER NEWS FROM RADIO JUGOSLAVIA

KFOR representatives supported the decision of the UNMIK head to declare the so-called Albanian National Army as a terrorist organization, pointing out that the KFOR is ready to defeat the forces which are endeavouring to destabilize the situation in Kosmet. The international forces use specialized services, in order to deal by all means with the groups of extremists who represent a threat for the normalizing of the situation in the province, the KFOR representatives pointed out. They also announced that two persons who represent a threat to the security in Kosmet have been apprehended in the US base Bondstill near Urosevac, not disclosing more details.

The UNMIK Head Michael Steiner proclaimed as null and void each document or resolution in contradiction with the position of the UN Security Council and the Constitutional Frameworks for Kosmet, stated UNMIK spokesman in Pristina Christian Linden Meyer. UNMIK pledges for a multi-ethnic Kosovo where all citizens will have equal rights, underlined Linden Meyer, on the occasion of Albanian parties’ announcement in Kosmet Assembly that they would adopt resolution on the protection of the struggle of the so-called Liberation Army of Kosovo.

In the meantime, it has been announced that the Kosovo Assembly Presidency has not discussed today new draft resolution on the recognition of the struggle of the so-called Liberation Army of Kosovo, leaving it for one of the forthcoming sessions.
