Serbia has sent a proposal for Kosovo organ trafficking investigation to UN

Serbia’s Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic has sent a proposal for an investigation into allegations of organ trafficking in Kosovo and Albania to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

Jeremic sent the letter to Ban on Tuesday afternoon, after he discussed the issue with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov, who was in Belgrade on an official visit.

The Serbian and Russian foreign ministers said Tuesday that they advocated an independent investigation into the allegations in Dick Marty’s report under a UN mandate, pointing out there must be no double standards.

According to Jeremić, a credible international investigation under the mandate of the UN is necessary because of the territorial jurisdiction of the bodies which will carry out the investigation, but also because all war crimes committed in the former Yugoslavia have been investigated under a UN Security Council mandate.
