Vukčević, Marty on Kosovo organ trade case

Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor Vladimir Vukčević has meet with CoE Parliamentary Assembly Rapporteur Dick Marty in Zurich, Switzerland.

Vukčević informed Marty about the latest findings of his office in the Kosovo organ trade case, the prosecution said in a statement in Belgrade on Tuesday.

On Friday, Vukčević will meet with the families of the kidnapped and missing persons from Kosovo and Metohija, to inform them about his meeting with the CoE official, the statement added.

The prosecution last year started an investigation into allegations that ethnic Albanians, members of the so-called Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), in 1999 kidnapped hundreds of Kosovo Serb and other non-Albanian civilians in the province.

The victims were then taken to northern Albania where their vital organs were removed to be sold in the black market.

The case is known informally as the Yellow House, after a building in northern Albania where the organ extraction is believed to have taken place.
