women, children and elderly, attacking civilian vehicles, buses and

intent to expel the last non Albanian inhabitants of Kosovo in their

Crimes under the
ominous UCK acronym - Albanain terrorism
February 22, 2002 - Ljubica Kovacevic, 57, a Serb woman from
Lipljan was killed on Friday (Feb 21) in Lipljan (15. km south
of Pristina) when an unindentified attacker opened fire by a machine
gun and riddled her with 30 bullets. This information was confirmed
to Beta News Agency by UNMIK spokesman Andrea Angeli. The attack
occured at 19.00. After the attack Mrs. Kovacevic was transfered
to hospital where her death was immediately confirmed.
news was also confirmed for B92 Radio by the Secretary of the
Lipljan Municipality Mr. Milorad Dekic who said that the murder
occured in one of the back streets in the center of Lipljan.
"The murderer was hidden behind the heap of the building
material and when Mrs. Kovacevic approached with her husband
the attacker opened the fire. She was killed at the spot and
her husband survived without any injuries", Dekic said.
He also reported that the Serbs of Lipljan are alarmed are shocked
this murder but nevertheless he called the present situation
stable. "The people are very alarmed. No incidents have
happened after the murder and our people gathered spontainously.
It is also interested that many Albanians gathered after the
murder. We could see more of their cars driving along the streets
only a few minutes after the armed attack. They seemed to be
triumphant. We have scheduled a protest meeting on Sunday when
we are going to issue an official protest to the international
bodies and the Sebian state authorities", Dekic said.
also said that the Serbs had asked a check point to be installed
near the location where the attack occured but that was done
only the next morning after the murder. "We had asked before
from KFOR to place a vehicle there for the sake of better security
because this was the area frequented by Serbs. We have pointed
out this to all internatinal representatives who talked to us
but everyone remained deaf to our repeated requests. It seems
that something like this had to happen that they finally realize
what is going on. Today we have seen the military vehicle, but
we still do not know how long it will be there", said Dekic.
Spokesperson Andrea Angeli has confirmed that the international
police have found the weapons near the place of attack. Investigation
is still ongoing.

face of Kosovo's "democracy"
deployment in Kosovo (June 99) 10.000 Serbs lived in
Lipljan. At the moment, almost three years after the end of
war only 2.200 remain living in a ghetto. Since the KFOR
arrival 33 Serbs of the relatively small Lipljan municipality
were murdered by Kosovo Albanian extremists, 17 were
abducted and are still missing. In this period there were 150
bomb attacks. After his visit to Lipljan Kosovo's Ombudsperson
Marek Nowitzki confirmed in his official report that Serbs lived
in a ghetto without bacis human rights and freedoms. The true
face of "Kosovo's democracy" may be seen in Lipljan,
Obilic, Orahovac, Pristina where Serbs live enclosed in their
quarter withut freedom to move freely. Existence of ghettoes
and such intolerance, which the owner of the Kosovo Albanian
newspaper Koha Ditore Veton
Surroi called "fashism", is the best indication
that Kosovo remains the most intolerant and criminal part of
Europe today reminding us all of the darkest days of WW2 nacism.
Paris, London, and Berlin, you see people of various races and
religions freely interacting with each other. Unfortunately,
we cannot say the same thing about Prishtina. Ordinary Kosovo
Serbs cannot leave their enclaves, let alone walk along Mother
Theresa Street due to fear of abuse".

But his warning dovetailed with what a senior Macedonian police
official told AP: that the insurgents still have hundreds of rifles,
machine guns and anti-armor weapons.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said weapons
are still being smuggled from neighboring Kosovo despite NATO
and Macedonian efforts to intercept them.
nationalism remains as the most dangerous obstacles for stability
and peace in SE Europe. With democratic processess going on after
the arrest of Milosevic in Kosovo it becomes more and more evident
that Albanian leaders see Kosovo only for the Albanian ethnicity.
Three years after the war Serbs and other non-Albanians (more
or less) are deprived of basic human rights and freedoms. Serbs
cannot normally use educational, medical and other public utilities
and do not have basic freedom of movement. While Albanian extremists
still rule Kosovo and do not allow establishing of democratic
institutions Serbs continue leaving the volatile province which
is under UN and NATO protectorate.
