EULEX head Xavier Bout de Marnhac has stated that the Mission would not select the cases that it would handle, regardless of whether they referred to corruption, organized crime or war crimes in Kosovo.

EULEX head Xavier Bout de Marnhac has stated that the Mission would not select the cases that it would handle, regardless of whether they referred to corruption, organized crime or war crimes in Kosovo.

The Mission will process any case that it has evidence for, de Marnhac stated in an interview for the Pristina-based daily Koha Ditore. De Marnhac pointed out that EULEX had moved from the initial phase of investigation to the trial phase, and that they would not stop there.

He explained that EULEX did not deal with individuals, including Fatmir Ljimaj (questioned by the police over the suspicion of committing war crime in the village of Klecka in Kosovo), but rather investigated crimes with sufficient evidence to be brought to court.

De Marnhac confirmed that it was very hard to find evidence in the cases of corruption, but reiterated that none of the open cases were concluded and that every one of them would be processed in court.

He underscored that, apart from the crimes committed during and after the war in 1999, there had been numerous other criminal acts, such as intimidation and attempts of murder.
