EULEX: UNKNOWN FATE OF 1,790 MISSING PERSONS
19 February 2012. / ree-AkademediasrbijaThe fate of 1,790 missing persons from all communities in Kosovo is still unknown, 13 years after the conflict, EULEX has stated, stressing that the missing persons issue remains a very delicate one.
That is why the Kosovo Justice Ministry and EULEX, through the Department of Forensic Medicine (DFM), think it a priority to continue their efforts in finding and returning the remains of victims to their families, so it would help the reconciliation process, says the statement.
Deputy Head of EULEX Press and Public Information Office Francoise Lambert said that since its formation in 2008, the DFM had helped in an efficient and tangible way to establish the foundation of a professional centre for forensic medical research and solving missing persons cases.
Together with EULEX, the Justice Ministry formed a Kosovo team for exhumation within the DFM, which has received training in forensic archeology.
