‘We fled to Montenegro while my father and his mother remained at our house. He said to have done no evil to anybody and have no reason to leave. He told us not to worry. On that 22nd day of June 1999 he went out to buy cigarettes and never returned home. In the photograph he is in uniform, but neither he nor anyone of the family took part in war conflict. We do not know if his body organs were removed from him’, Rade Dragovic said at press conference at the War crimes prosecution.

The prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic believes that the KLA rebels have dressed Predrag Dragovic in uniform on purpose before killing him in order to hide killing of civilians.

‘We have identified the most probable executors of Dragovic. About ten of the KLA rebels who took part in killings in the north of Albania have been identified’, Vukcevic said.

ACCORDING TO HIS WORDS, THERE ARE FOUR LOCATIONS IN ALBANIA THAT THE PROSECUTION BELIEVES THAT THE BODY ORGANS WERE USED TO BE REMOVED FROM CAPTURED SERBS.

‘We do not know the exact number of victims but we know that about 300 non-Albanians have disappeared’, Bruno Vekaric, spokesman of the War crimes prosecution says.

Vukcevic said that the prosecution shall request again from Albania to cooperate in the investigation and if Albania refuses, the Prosecution shall address international institutions.

At the end of March Vukcevic is to meet with Dick Marty, the EU special envoy for these issues. He is also to meet with the EULEX chief prosecutor soon.  According to Vekaric one witness has made a sketch of a house that was a private prison for civilians from Kosovo and Metohija where the KLA used to bring people. The prosecution has located that house in the Port of Drac.

The Prosecution has also got via its sources a complete UNMIK’s report over investigation of the ‘yellow house’ at Burrel in Albania. According to former chief prosecutor Carla Del Ponte it was the house in which the body organs were taken from the victims.
