Serbia (Kosovo): Time for EULEX to prioritize war crimes
In June 2012, the European Union will extend the mandate of the EU-led Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX). In this report, Amnesty International urges EU member states and institutions to ensure that in 2012-2014, EULEX is mandated to prioritize the investigation and prosecution of war crimes. Hundreds of war crimes from the 1998-9 war in Kosovo have yet to be investigated. Despite some progress, few members of the Kosovo Liberation army (KLA) or Serbian military, police and paramilitary forces have been prosecuted for war crimes.
