U.N. police arrests four former ethnic Albanian rebels in Kosovo
Tue Jun 18, 1:26 PM ET

PRISTINA, Yugoslavia - U.N. police arrested four former ethnic Albanian rebels on Tuesday for crimes committed after the province's war, officials said.


In a simultaneous action in at least two towns in Kosovo, U.N. police arrested four men suspected of crimes against their fellow ethnic Albanians in June 1999, said Andrea Angeli, a spokesman for the U.N. mission in Kosovo.

"They are suspected of crimes that involved unlawful detention and serious assault," Angeli said. The victims were all ethnic Albanians and most of them remain missing, he added.

U.N. officials declined to reveal the exact nature of the alleged crimes or precisely where the incidents occurred. The U.N. mission also declined to reveal the names of the suspects.

However, the Kosovo Protection Corps, a civil emergency organization, identified the men as being senior members of the group in a statement that sharply criticized the U.N. police and their actions. The corps accused them of ill-treating the men.

The Kosovo Protection Corps is comprised of former members of the now disbanded Kosovo Liberation Army, the ethnic Albanian rebel group that fought Serb forces in Kosovo's 1998-1999 war.

The corps, which is commanded by former rebel leaders, was set up after NATO ( news - web sites)-led airstrikes in 1999 ended former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic ( news - web sites)'s crackdown on ethnic Albanians in Kosovo.

The tomb of Biljana Pavlovic in summer 1998


The tomb of Biljana Pavlovic in June 2002

The story of a tomb of late Biljana Pavlovic (1972-1996) is not unique in Kosovo and Metohija today. As one of the best students of the Pristina Medical Faculty, Biljana (pronounced Bilyana) died suddenly in her 24th year, leaving her parents without consolation. On the upper photo we can see her father Zoran, her mother and brother standing before the tomb covered by expensive black marble. On the picture down, four years later we can see Zoran Pavlovic in front of what remains from the tomb of his daughter. All black marble has been removed by Albanians who resell marble from desecrated Serb Orthodox tombs. MORE
