European Parliament: “Heated debate behind closed doors” over the Kosovo organ trafficking allegations

In-depth Report:

According to the news agency’s sources, the debate in one of the parliament’s committee’s ended with the conclusion that the EP must stop its years-long silence and appoint a rapporteur on organized crime in Kosovo, whose main bosses are part of many key structures of the authorities and in leading positions.

Beta was told this by sources in the Committee for Foreign Policy of the EP where Council of Europe rapporteur Dick Marty reported, behind closed doors, about crimes and the trafficking in Serb organs in Kosovo and Albania.

Several members of the EP told the news agency that, despite great divisions among the European deputies and fierce attacks against Marty, but also with many stands in support of the Council of Europe’s rapporteur, the stand prevailed that it is impossible to “bury one’s head in the sand” any more.

At the meeting which was closed to the media, Marty once again sharply warned that the truth cannot be learned without a serious international investigation and, primarily, a reliable witness protection program, which is currently not possible to secure in Kosovo.

Marty’s report, incriminating ethnic Albanian KLA for committing atrocities against Serb civilians, including trade in their organs, provided the basis for a Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) resolution adopted in January, which calls for launching a probe into the allegations.
