Serbian Government Office for Kosovo head Marko Djuric says he hopes a new court would help rid the Kosovo public scene of people responsible for crimes.

The court in question is currently being set up to try crimes committed by the so-called "Kosovo Liberation Army" ("KLA").

"People who personally ran operations and who are responsible for crimes cannot be a bridge of reconciliation between the Serbs and Albanians - they must be held accountable," he told Serbia's public broadcaster RTS on Friday, Tanjug has reported.

Someone must, at last, answer for all the horrific crimes committed against the Kosovo andMetohija Serbs, he said.

That court must prove it is seriously intent on prosecuting war criminals responsible for the fact that 40,000 Serbs are no longer in Pristina, that 247,000 Serbs were forced to leave Kosovo and Metohija and, even more so, for the fact that thousands who were killed are also missing, he said.
