In 2013. the EULEX prosecutors filed criminal charges against 17 Serbs from Djakovica for alleged involvement in war crimes committed in the village of Meja  14 years ago is a scenario to intimidate Serbs who intend to return to their homes.

 Serbs found  shelter in the monastery: the only living Serbs in Djakovica – Only six Serbian elderly woman in Djakovica before the war 12,500 Serbs lived in Djakovica.  During the joint NATO and Albanian terror they were expelled, murdered  and some are still on the Missing person’s list. 
There are only six elderly Serbian women  who found a refuge in the courtyard of the Church of the Holy Virgin. They live as prisoners, fearing to leave the church yard. The  Albanian terror through intimidation is on a daily basis.

EULEX says it has launched an official investigation concerning 20 suspects of alleged crimes  committed in April 1999. in the municipality of Djakovica when  372 Albanians were killed. Since no bodies nor other evidence have ever been found on the crime scene after the Kosovo war, and  Djakovica  appeared to have multiplied number of its inhabitants, all the charges are based on Albanian ‘witnesses’ testimonies and claims that the bodies are supposed to be found some 400 kilometers northern,  in a  controversial  mass grave in Batajnica near Belgrade (?)
The EU prosecutors  identified persons who could be charged with crimes against the civilian population through local  Albanians testimonies.

Serbian Coordinator of Djakovica Đokica Stanojevic, however, argues that the criminal charges were filed in order to intimidate the Serbs and prevent their return to Kosovo.

Possible intimidation  and prevention of potential returnees to come back to Kosovo and ask for their rights and property, is actually in  the agenda of this and similar charges the EULEX had flied, says Ranđel Nojkic, one of the political representatives of Serbs south of the Ibar.  Nojkic pointed to an attempt to create fear among the Serbs who have returned to the villages of Zac near Istok and Drsnik near Klina,  and all those who are willing to return to their homes.- This moment was chosen because the problem of the expelled whose whole estate and property was usurped , was to be on the agenda of the technical dialogue in Brussels.  It is striking that none of the investigations of crimes against Serbs that were  murdered and expelled,  has  ever started.  Over 12,500 Serbs are missing in the Djakovica. Some were robbed and are  refugees in Serbia central, others were murdered, and significant number is still missing.

– I can’t comment the indictment, because I’m not familiar with the case. I believe that these problems could be solved within the agreement between Belgrade and Pristina,  we had cases when the prosecutor in Pristina  lifts the indictment and keeps in detention for years persons that later turned out to be innocent.  They don’t even get compensated – said Nojkic.
