“We are committed to the continuation of cooperation and to intensify our activities in order to bring to justice all those who participated in these monstrous crimes,” Dacic said.
The EU’s Special Investigative Task Force is in charge of further probing allegations contained in a 2010 report by the Council of Europe’s then human rights rapporteur, Dick Marty.
The report alleged that some elements within the Kosovo Liberation Army, including Kosovo’s current Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, had harvested and sold the organs of prisoners during the 1999 conflict with Serbian forces.
EU prosecutor Clint Williamson didn’t give any comment to media after the meeting with Dacic, but the Serbian government issued a statement saying that scores of people had already been quizzed by the task force.
“So far, the EU team has examined around 100 potential witnesses,” the government statement said.
The organ trafficking investigation generated more controversy last year when a Serbian TV station broadcast an interview with an alleged ex-Kosovo Liberation Army member who claimed to have harvested the organs of Serbian prisoners in the Albanian town of Kukes in 1999.
