Former Serbian acting president admits to knowing about 17 mass graves

Novi Sad, 29 October: Former Serbian acting president Natasa Micic has said today that she had known about the 17 mass graves [of Kosovo Albanians] in Serbia.

"I used to bring this up as a problem which needed to be faced. As long as we fail to resolve all these dark aspects of our past we cannot move towards the future. From Srebrenica to Prime Minister Djindjic's assassination, to mass graves, we will not be able to integrate into Europe," Micic told a news conference in Novi Sad.

She added that Serbia must face the dark aspects of its recent history, "not because of international obligations, but because of ourselves".
