Commenting a request of the director of the Serbian government’s Office for Kosovo Aleksandar Vulin that Serbia should be handed over lists of suspected Serbs, Tahiri said that Belgrade never officially launched this issue at the meetings in Brussels.

Vulin earlier said that Serbia requested to be handed over
the lists so that it could be known who was suspected among Serbs
and for what, in order to stop manipulation and create a precondition
for establishing peace in Kosovo.

Bekim Blakaj from the Kosovo’s Humanitarian Law Centre
said that publishing the lists of suspects would have negative effects
in reaching justice. He said that Serbia never dealt with the issue of
war crimes committed in Kosovo seriously.
