BELGRADE, April 25 (Hina) - The Office of the Serbian Prosecutor for War Crimes on Tuesday issued an indictment against eight members of the Serbian Interior Ministry's special forces and state security department for crimes committed against civilians in Suva Reka in Kosovo in 1999, during the NATO air campaign against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
The indictment refers to the killing of 48 members of the Berisha family from Suva Reka, including six children aged 1-4, seven children aged 7-13, a 100-year-old woman and a woman eight months pregnant.
Their bodies were found in 2001 in a mass grave on a military range in Batajnica near Belgrade. Serbian police general Vlastimir Djordjevic has been indicted by the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague for this crime. Djordjevic fled Serbia in late 2000 and, according to some Serbian media, has lived in Russia since.
