The Advisory Committee for Human Rights in Kosovo  in three separate opinions sought  from UNMIK to publicly admit responsibility for their failure to conduct an effective investigation , and to publicly apologize for suffering and mental pain their failure caused to families of the missing.  The Eulex Commission seek to consider re-opening and continuing of the criminal investigations. The case of disappearance of Kosovo Serbs after several years of investigation still didn’t start, despite all the evidences.

Harrowing testimony of Gracanica : Photos of missing Serbs in Kosovo

One of them is a case of the disappearance of a young man Slobodan Pejčinović whose destiny as for the International organizations remains ‘unknown’,  despite there were several witnesses who saw how, in what circumstances and with who he left. Young  man Pejcinovic lived in Djurakovac . At the end of March, 1999 , three neighbors A. B , B.H and B. K  ( all Albanians)  invited him to go to Montenegro to find work and escape the war. Although both father and mother (Milorad and Desanka) were against that trip,  on March 26, Slobodan and neighbors left Djurakovac .  But  they were stopped by armed KLA (Albanian terrorists)  in the Rugova Gorge near Pec; As soon the terrorists  found out that he was a Serb , they separated him from the other three, And since then there were no traces of Slobodan..

Even though father Milorad informed the Advisory committee of the UN Human Rights in Kosovo that his wife was told about the identity of KLA members who killed their son, even though the neighbors heard  an uncle of  one of the involved, A. B, advised others to  ”  to flee” because they could be  “picked up” (by investigators) – no investigation has been conducted. 

On 15 July 1999. Desanka  reported the kidnapping and disappearance of their son to Italian KFOR in their camp in the village of Gorazdevac; she reported the case to UNMIK and the International Committee of the Red Cross.  Then she submited charges to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia; in March 2006 the criminal charges in the case of  kidnapping of Slobodan Pejcinovic were filed against three of his “companions” on his way to Rozaje to the Serbian War Crimes Prosecution in Belgrade, and then to EULEX as well.

The three Albanians who were with Slobodan before his disappearance were called for hearing and reportedly acquitted of all charges. One of them – B.H had said  that  after five or six hours of walking in Rugova gorge were stopped by armed members of the KLA in a small barn in the mountains and  interrogated. Then the four men were taken to another house, after another six to seven hours walk, where they interrogated and beaten again. In the morning the three of them were taken to the “warehouse” and later released; all except Slobodan Pejcinovic.

Despite all the efforts of parents, no Judical or police authority has provided any response, although they “promised to work very diligently to solve the case.”  Father Milorad  after all came back to live in Đurakovac; He believes that UNMIK has not conducted an adequate investigation.
While the Pejcinovic live  an over a decade long nightmare, the responsible  Albanian  neighbors 
A.B and B. H are living in Pec, protected and sure that neither UNMIK nor EULEX will make any seroius move in order to discover what happened to Slobodan Pejcinovic. The third involved, B. K  fled Kosovo long ago  and, lives in the United States carefree.

Other missing Serbs from the city of Pec & area  from 13 June – 31 August 1999   – in the presence of KFOR (NATO troops in Kosovo Metohija), UNMIK (United Nations Mission in Kosovo), OSCE, and others – before their very eyes!:
