Balkan Insight findings confirmed

Posted on

The findings of a major investigative report in the September 30 launch issue of Balkan Insight received important confirmation last week, as an official investigation began into six employees of the Serbian interior ministry and three former policemen.

The nine men, taken into custody on October 26, are accused of committing war crimes in Suva Reka, Kosovo, in 1999.

The original article in Balkan Insight, which had predicted this breakthrough, was widely republished in newspapers and news agencies throughout Kosovo, Macedonia and Romania, both when it first came out, and later, in the aftermath of the arrests.
