PRISTINA, Yugoslavia - U.N. forensic experts have started to examine 28 bodies found in unmarked graves in southern Kosovo, an official said Thursday.
The remains were
exhumed on Tuesday and Wednesday from recently found individual graves
in Brekovac, a village on the outskirts of Djakovica, a town some 90
kilometers (56 miles) southwest of the capital Pristina, said U.N. spokesman
PRISTINA -- Thursday - At today's Kosovo Parliament sitting the Serb coalition Return requested the dismissal of the Parliament speaker Nedzat Daci and Kosovo Prime Minister Bajram Rexhepi. They also want Kosovo President Ibrahim Rugova held accountable for abusing the institutions of the system to promote the idea of an independent Kosovo.
Explaining this request, head of the Return caucus MP Rada Trajkovic said that the job of the coalition's MPs is not to sit in Kosovo institutions that are being used to establish an independent Kosovo.
"Our role is to see that the honouring of human rights is secured through these institutions", said Trajkovic and added that, since the deployment of the peace mission in Kosovo, the Serb community "has been faced with an ethnic and human exodus".
To back her claims Trajkovic said that, before the conflicts, the population in Pristina was 250 000 of which 45 000 people were Serbs. According to official OSCE statistics, there are more than 650 000 people living in Pristina today, of which only 185 are Serbs.
"This does not justify the international community's role", said Trajkovic.
At the same time, the Albanians wanted UNMIK chief Michael Steiner held accountable for exceeding his authority by releasing a plan to resolve the Kosovska Mitrovica issue. The Parliament has requested Steiner to address the parliament at the next sitting scheduled for October 10 and explain the plan.
