|BELGRADE -- A former UNMIK Forensics and Missing Persons Office chief says the Marty report offers a sufficient number of facts for initiation of a criminal investigation.|
Jose Pablo Baraybar, who first reported about the Kosovo human organ trafficking suspicions, added that the data presented in the report of the special rapporteur of the Council of Europe (CoE) coincided with some of his findings at the time when he worked for the UN mission in Kosovo and Metohija.
"Marty's report offers enough evidence for initiation of a criminal investigation but for the time being this is just a preliminary report. Marty will present the report to the public, but the competent bodies need to be motivated to a lunch a criminal investigation," Baraybar stated for the Monday edition of the Belgrade-based daily Večernje Novosti.
"I am particularly satisfied that the allegations of a camp in Kukes, Albania, were confirmed. I used to speak publicly of the matter when I was in Kosovo. That is the truth that no one wanted to accept. I have seen the camp by myself, but the people in Kosovo kept denying the fact. Another issue confirmed by Marty's report are the graves with unidentified bodies which were discovered by UNMIK in Bicaj near Kukes," Baraybar said
"Generally speaking, Marty's report includes a lot of claims which prove what we have seen or heard of. Someone has finally put the pieces together and that is very important," the former UNMIK forensic stated.
