War Crimes Prosecution has launched an investigation against the General of the Yugoslav Army Dragoslav Zivanovic, Commander of the 125 Motorized Brigade, for crimes committed against Albanian civilians in Kosovo villages Cuska, Pavljan, Ljubenic and Zahac in 1999.


Zivanovic is charged for omitting to prevent the killings of at least 118 Albanian civilians, heavy bodily injuries of 13 people, destruction of 40 houses, robbery and expulsion.


Prosecutions’ order brings that the General knew that members of the 177 army-territorial unit from Peć/Pejë would, while carrying out the order for searching houses, commit killings, rapes, destruction of the property and expulsion.

The order reminds that Zivanovic was the superior to Toplica Miladinovic, Milojko Nikolic and Dejan Bulatovic who were sentenced to maximal sentences of 20 years in prison by the first instance verdict of the court for the crimes committed in village Cuska in Peć/Pejë municipality.

Nine members of the same unit were also sent to prison by the Higher Court in Belgrade for the same crime./express/
