The Patriot News: Letters to the Editor

A small but significant item on page A11 April 30 caught my eye: “Five convicted in Kosovo’s organ-trafficking ring.” As someone who has followed and written about the events in Kosovo since the war’s inception, there is more to this story which must also be told if the truth is to be known.

Carla del Ponte, former chief prosecutor at The Hague tribunal and author of, “The Hunt: Me and War Criminals,” states that Kosovo Albanians harvested organs of kidnapped ethnic Serbs after the armed conflict ended in 1999.

These allegations [of organ harvesting of Serbian soldiers] were made by several sources, one of whom “personally made an organ delivery” to an Albanian airport for transport abroad,” and “confirmed information directly gathered by the tribunal.”

Del Monte also writes that senior figures in the Kosovo Liberation Army were aware of the harvesting of the organ scheme in which hundreds of young Serbs were allegedly stripped of their organs.

In The Telegraph (UK) article of 2008 entitled, “Serb prisoners ‘were stripped of their organs in Kosovo war’,” del Ponte writes, “The victims, deprived of a kidney, were then locked up again, inside the barracks, until the moment they were killed for other vital organs. In this way, the other prisoners were aware of the fate that awaited them, and according to the source, pleaded, terrified, to be killed immediately.”

America was taken to war against the Serbian people in support of the Kosovo Albanians and the Kosovo Liberation Army, an army about which the U.S. Special Envoy to the Balkans, Robert Gelbard, said, “I know a terrorist when I see one, and these men are terrorists.” (BBC. 6/28/1998)
