On Sunday May 21 the protector of Kosovo, Kouchner , has met the demands of
37 Serbs and 5 Romanies who had been on hunger strike since April 10. He
promised the immediate start of their legal procedures as well as the
chairmanship of international judges.
The 42 prisoners has staged their protest, because they have been
incarcerated for minor offences or completely unproven adventurous
accusations already for nearly one year. At the same time Albanian assassins
had been released immediately by the exclusively Albanian UN protectorate
judges. The 42 Sebs and Romanies of the UN prison of Kosovska Mitrovica
demand the status of political prisoners as they have obviously been
imprisoned because of their national affiliation (details see
Although Kouchner has promised fair trials these are very unlikely. The
purpose of the protectorate-s administration is to legitimate war and
occupation by NATO by blaming all on the Serbs. For them it is obvious that
only the complete albanisation of Kosovo can grant their rule.
The geo-strategic interest of NATO therefore co-incites with those of the
KLA to displace all non-Albanians. Thus the ?juridical system of the
occupants is subordinated to this principle.
We therefore will closely watch the further proceeding regarding the Serb
and Romani political prisoners in Kosovo.
The JÖSB demands the return of all displaced non-Albanians, the withdrawal
of NATO and KLA as well as the complete restitution of Yugoslavia-s
sovereignty of the Kosovo.
