Former Gendarmerie commander reacts after the US passes resolution on Bytyqi brothers
Radosavljevic is cited as responsible in the text of the resolution because he was the commander of the Gendarmerie police unit at the time the crime against the Bytyqi brothers was committed
Former Gendarmerie commander Goran Radosavljevic Guri said today that he was not concerned about the decision of the House of Representatives of the United States Congress to adopt for the first time a resolution requiring Serbia to resolve the 1999 murder of three Bytyqi brothers - Ylli, Agron and Mehmet.
"They've been adopting those resolutions before. I'm tired of making comments. I am clean and have no reason to be scared. I was never scared," Radosavljevic told Radio Free Europe.
Radosavljevic, who is cited as responsible in the text of the resolution because he was the commander of the Gendarmerie police unit at the time the crime against the Bytyqi brothers was committed, says he is always ready to respond to any invitation from Serbia's judicial authorities.
"The judicial authorities are doing their job, the FBI was doing its job," he said.
The House of Representatives of the US Congress has passed a resolution requiring from Serbia to resolve the murder of the three Bytyqi brothers.
According to Pristina newspaper Gazeta Express, the resolution states, among other things, that "progress in resolving this case, or lack thereof, should remain a significant factor determining further development of relations between the US and the Republic of Serbia."
The brothers, Mehmet, Agron and Ily Bytyqi were arrested in 1999 upon entering Serbia for illegally crossing the border, as then Serbian authorities claimed. After serving their sentence they were released from prison and then killed.
Their bodies were discovered in July 2001 in a mass grave in Petrovo Selo, eastern Serbia, in an area controlled by a unit under the command of Goran Radosavljevic Guri. The bodies were found with their hands tied and gunshot wounds to the back of the head.
Two police officers were charged with aiding and abetting the murder of the Bytyqi brothers - Sreten Popovic and Milos Stojanovic, who have been acquitted of war crimes charges by the Belgrade Higher Court. The court said that there was no evidence of their involvement in the July 1999 killings.
