The Special Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Kosovo has announced that so far it has filed a total of 33 indictments, involving 89 people, for war crimes in Kosovo.

"No nationality, whether Serbian, Albanian, Bosnian, Montenegrin, is expressed in any way. We will make justice equal for everyone. We also have cases that we prioritize, among them was Dubrava Prison, Meja. But we also prioritize the murder of a Serbian journalist, for which we are investigating intensively", said chief prosecutor Blerim Isufaj, in a press conference, on Friday in Pristina.

In this conference, the Prosecutor's Office gave details about the case of the Meja Massacre and the one in the Dubrava Prison.

According to prosecutor Drita Hajdari, Meja's case was inherited by the European Union Mission for the Rule of Law in Kosovo - EULEX, which opened an investigation in 2013 against 18 people.

She announced that with the acceptance of the case at the end of 2018, local prosecutors have continued the investigation, expanding it to 35 more people, bringing the total number of defendants in this case to 53.

Regarding the Dubrava Massacre, for which the trial began on Thursday in Pristina, prosecutor Ilir Morina said that there are 88 defendants in this case, as the investigation continues.

He also said that this case was also inherited by EULEX.

Morina has announced that there is only one defendant in custody, while the investigation continues for the others.

In the 1998-1999 war, over 13,000 civilians are believed to have been killed in Kosovo, while thousands more have disappeared. To this day, more than 1,600 people remain missing - most of them Albanians./rel
