  • [01] Britain Sends Military Vehicles, Heavy Guns for Possible Use in Kosova

    PRISHTINA, Feb 15 (KIC) - The British army began moving military vehicles and heavy guns from Germany to Greece on Monday for use in a possible NATO intervention in Kosova, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

    About 400 vehicles, including tanks and armored infantry vehicles, were loaded onto ferries in the northern port of Emden for transport to Thessalonika, the British army said.

    Nineteen British soldiers accompanied the vehicles and arms. The British government said about 2,350 more soldiers were prepared to fly to Kosova if necessary, AP reported.

    NATO has planned sending 25,000-30,000 troops into Kosova to enforce a deal, if one is reached at Rambouillet, France.

    Saturday, 20 February 1999, has been set as the deadline for Kosovar and 'FRY'/Serbian delegations to reach an interim settlement for Kosova for a three-year-period on the basis of a Contact Group plan.

    [02] Serb Police Ill-treats, Kidnaps Albanians in Mitrovica

    PRISHTINA, Feb 16 (KIC) - Many Albanians were stopped and ill- treated by some 30 Serb policemen near the marketplace in Mitrovica from 19:00 through 22:00 CET on Monday, local LDK sources said.

    Also on Monday, many policemen mounted a checkpoint in the "Ibri" neighborhood, where many Albanian passers-bye were ill-treated.

    Meanwhile, LDK sources said four Serbian policemen abducted two young Albanians near the bus station in Mitrovica today morning.

    Their names have not been reported yet. The policemen who kidnapped the Albanians were with a car with license plates KM: 618-530, the LDK chapter said.

    A convoy of Serbian police forces left Mitrovica for Skenderaj today morning, local sources said.

    Yesterday morning, four Serb police APCs were deployed between the villages of Zhabar i Ep&rm and Koshtov& e Bobit.

    Serbian police forces have been routinely fining Albanian motorists in Mitrovica. Two Serbian policemen, reportedly names Nenad Pavicevic and Ratko Antonijevic, robbed Abit B. Jashari (51), resident of Mitrovica, of 2.050 Yugoslav dinars and 150 DM. He was eventually taken to the police station in town and was released on condition he reported back to the police.

    [03] Eight Albanian Political Activists to Appear Before Serb Regime Court in Gjilan

    PRISHTINA, Feb 15 (KIC) - The Serbian-run district court in Gjilan was to start the trial of eight local Albanian political activists today, the chapter of the Council for the Defense of Human Rights and Freedoms (CDHRF) reported.

    The following Albanians have been indicted on trumped up, terrorism-related charges: Avdullah Tahiri (1956), Ahmet Demiri (1964), Lutfi Haziri (1969), Nexhat Bunjaku (1971), Ismet Hashani (1962), Ibrahim Oru^i (1968), Ekrem Qerimi (1962) and Tajar Berisha (1954). They have been in pre-trial custody since 15 October 1998.

    The Serbian regime accuses them of having formed in 1997/98 a "diversant terrorist organization" in Gjilan within the Kosova Liberation Army (U^K) and the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kosova (FARK).

    A Serbian police convoy arrived in Gjilan from Ferizaj today morning, LDK sources said.
