Nothing found in Kosovo suspected mass grave site

EU forensics experts say they did not find any human remains after a search on Tuesday in Livoc Lake in the eastern town of Gjilani.

“On this occasion no remains were located,” Alan Robinson, the co-head of the Department of Forensic Medicine within EULEX, told journalists on Tuesday.

A forensics team from the EU rule-of-law mission, EULEX, with the help of search and rescue divers of the Kosovo Security Force, KSF, searched the lake on Tuesday based on suspicion that the site contains bodies of Kosovo Serbs.

Robinson said that the operation was a result of successful collaboration between EULEX and KSF and praised the dedication and professionalism of KSF.

“We very much look forward to work with them in our future operations,” he said.

He added that the team was ready to go and assess the site again ‘if provided with better information’.

The searches of suspected mass grave sites began after information was provided last year by a Serbian working group on missing persons.
