Thaci: Serbian genocidal policies must be denounced

President of Kosovo Hashim Thaci has reacted to statements from Serbian officials denying the Recak massacre.

“I see officials from Serbia denying some of the worst crimes against civilians that happened in Europe, confirmed by ICTY, like Recak. Serbian genocidal policies cannot be defended. They must be denounced. Peace, reconciliation, justice cannot be built based on denying crimes,” Thaci wrote on Twitter.

The reactions come after the Basic Court in Prishtina sentenced former Minister of Local Government and Administration Ivan Todosijevic to two years in prison on charges of inciting ethnic hatred after he stated that the Recak massacre was a fabrication.
