BELGRADE -- More than 1,000 Serbs have been murdered in Kosovo since June 1999 - when the war ended and international forces were deployed in the province.
This is according to Assistant Minister for Kosovo Kruna Kaličanin, who spoke in Belgrade on Thursday.
She also noted that "almost nobody" was charged and put on trial for those crimes.
The international community, in the meanwhile, showed a tendency to "minimize" the importance of Serb victims, Kaličanin added.
These statements came a day after a Serb man was shot and killed, while two others were wounded in Kosovska Mitrovica.
Kaličanin also accused the Kosovo Albanian authorities of covering up some of the most grave crimes, such as the murders in Staro Gracko, Goradevac, Cernica, Obilić, and near Podujevo.
Immediately after NATO deployed its forces in the province in June 1999, 14 Serb harvesters were killed in their fields in Staro Gracko. Their killers were never found, while ethnic Albanian Milazim Bitiqi was arrested, and set free six months later for alleged lack of evidence.
In May 2000, 4-year-old Miki Petrović, 60-year-old Vojin Vasić and 45-year-old Tihomir Simijonović were killed, while Petko Vasić and Zoran Stolić were seriously wounded in Cernica. Several others were also injured when their neighbor, an ethnic Albanian, attacked them with an automatic rifle as they were sitting in front of a local store. No one was held responsible for that crime.
In 2010, the EU mission in Kosovo, EULEX, dropped its investigation into the 2003 murder of two Serb teenagers in the enclave of Goradevac. Four other children were also wounded when unknown perpetrators opened fire on them.
In the second-degree procedure against Florim Ejupi, EULEX decided to set the defendant free for lack of evidence.
Ejupi was previously found guilty and sentenced to 40 years in prison by the UN mission in Kosovo, UNMIK.
The ethnic Albanian was the only suspect held and put on trial in the case.
He was accused of planting a bomb on a road near the town of Podujevo in 2001, to activate it as a Ni Express bus was driving by.
The attack resulted in the deaths of 12 Serb passengers.
Well, they deserved it.
I would not have been sorry to see germans executed in 1945 and l do not feel sorry to see these fascists get what they deserve.
God forbid anyone try and defend themselves from the muslim invaders!
Um, the Serbs fought against the Nazis in WW2 and Muslims were allies of the Nazis.
I have no idea why you would say something like that...
At least some of the dead Serbs were children or elderly who couldn’t possibly have had anything to do with the Milosevic’s regime’s atrocities against Albanian civilians. If you want to take a look at a real fascist, look in a mirror.
You are heartless....and ignorant of history

Crack open a history book dude. The Serbians land was stolen by Muslims and they have been fighting ever since.
You’re a moron.
I’m still glad that Holbrooke is roasting in Hell.
Remember what you said if your family gets killed during the Reconquista of Aztlan.
I would recommend that you stay out of areas where you don't know what you're talking about, Mkay.
Listen to what you’re saying, Mr. Heartless (how well-named!).
Yes, Allied troops did mistreat and sometimes kill German civilians in 1945. But by 1948 or 1949, West Germany was well-ensconced in the European Community and NATO, under the very same President (Truman) who was in power in 1945. By 1957—12 years after the end of WWII—almost no one in the US or Britain thought of West Germany as an “enemy” or as “Nazi”. Trade between West Germany and the rest of the West was brisk, and military cooperation was strong.
It is now 12 years after the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia—the chronological equivalent of 1957. And hate-filled ignoramuses like you are STILL saying that “the Serbs deserve it”!!!!!
Besides that, the Serbs were right to defend their historic heartland, Kosovo and Metohija, against the Albanian savages and their jihadi and New World Order backers. The Bosnian Serbs were also right to defend their ancestral homes and farms against the jihadist Bosnian muslims, and their Arab, Iranian, and NWO/clintonite allies and backers.
Now we Americans are subjected to the same NWO oppression that was perfected in the Balkans. How do you think that the obama Administration came into being? What do you think Soros/obama’s real aims are? Think real hard!!!!
