|TIRANA -- Prosecutor of the EULEX Mission in Kosovo Isabelle Arnal conferred Monday in Tirana with Albanian colleagues, said reports.|
They talked about starting an investigation into human organ trafficking in Kosovo and Albania in the late 1990s, allegedly organized by Kosovo Albanian Prime Minister Hashim Thaci at the time he was one of the leaders of the so-called Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).
The accusations were published in a report of Council of Europe rapporteur Dick Marty. The report says that Serb and other civilians victims were kidnapped in Kosovo and taken to northern Albania in 1999 and 2000, where their body parts were removed and sold in the black market.
In Tirana, Arnal met with Albania's state prosecutor Ina Rama, reported Italian news agency ANSA.
They agreed the two prosecutor's offices will cooperate and coordinate their investigations into the case, said a statement.
The Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly will debate Marty's report on January 24 and 25.
