The documentary film, “The Unidentified”, which describes some of the most brutal crimes of Serb forces in Kosovo will be shown today in Washington.

The 40 minute film, which was produced by Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN), explores some of the war crimes carried out by Serb forces against Albanian civilians in the spring of 1999 in the villages of Lubeniq, Qyshk, Pavlan and Zahaq.

Based on a two year research, the film is focused on the attacks carried out in the villages of Pec and identifies the commanders and the officers who are suspected of having given orders and who have moved the bodies of the victims in a massive grave in Serbia.

Among the main suspects is also the person that is suspected of the killing of three Bytyqi brothers, Albanians who had US citizenship, for which no Serb has faced trial.

Following the documentary, there will be a debate with the participation of Dian Orentlicher, professor of International Law in the Law Faculty in Washington, Marija Ristic, the film director and Fatos Bytyqi, the brother of Mehmet and Agron Bytyqi killed by Serb forces after the war in Kosovo. /ibna/
