Serbia hands over remains of 41 Kosovo Albanians found in mass graves

Text of report in English by independent internet news agency KosovaLive

Prishtina [Pristina], 25 November: The mortal remains of 41 Kosova [Kosovo] Albanians killed by Serb forces during the war in Kosova and found in mass graves in Serbia will be handed over this afternoon, the government's information office has announced.

The Kosova Government Commission on Missing Persons announced that the mortal remains were exhumed from mass graves in Batajnica and Bajina Basta, Serbia.

The head of the Commission on Missing Persons, Nysrete Kumnova said that their handover is expected to take place this afternoon at Merdare border crossing point.

She told KosovaLive that they are the mortal remains of Albanians from Gjakove [Djakovica] and Suhareke [Suva Reka].

Kumnova said that neither local nor the international representatives are working enough to resolve this issue.

Kumnova said that it is absurd for the relatives to come every time at the border crossing point and not to find their loved ones. "The mortal remains should be handed over all at once," she said.

She believes that the issue of missing should necessarily be included during the status talks process.
