PDSRSG and COMKFOR joint statement following the judgement delivered by ICTY in the Fatmir Limaj et al. case

PRISTINA – Principal Deputy SRSG Larry Rossin and COMKFOR Lieutenant-General Giuseppe Valotto this afternoon issued the following statement after learning of the judgement by the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in the Fatmir Limaj et al. case:

“UNMIK and KFOR have taken note of the judgement delivered today by the ICTY in the Fatmir Limaj et al. case. The ICTY is an independent judicial body and UNMIK and KFOR cannot comment on judicial decisions.”

A judgement had been expected in the normal course of court proceedings and as such it is appropriate that there should be public interest in the Tribunal’s decision. PDSRSG Rossin and Lt.-Gen. Valotto expressed their confidence that the people of Kosovo would display their characteristic dignity in response to this development.
