A group of citizens protests in Gjakova against Serb pilgrims

 A group of citizens are protesting in Gjakova, opposing the visit of Serb pilgrims to the Orthodox Church.

The protest was held, despite the organizers had told the Serbian media that the visit of the Serb pilgrims to Gjakova was canceled for security reasons.

Kosovo Police Commander in the Gjakova region, Krist Gjokaj, told Radio Free Europe that there is no bus with a Serb pilgrim who has gone to Gjakova.

The protests against Serb pilgrims have been called by the citizens of Gjakova, mostly family members of the dead and missing persons during the last war.

"Without justice, no silence without justice" and "The blood of Albanian children killed by Serbia is not forgiven," were some of the slogans that these citizens held in their hands.

One day ago, the founder of the Humanitarian Law Fund, Natasa Kandic, invited Kosovo President Hashim Thaci to enable this year's Serbs from Gjakova to visit the church.

President Thaci has assured Kandic that he will be committed to ensuring freedom of movement for all, including those members of the Serb community who want to visit their church or their homes.

Meanwhile, the "Mothers Call" association from Gjakova has asked Thaci not to allow the visit of Serbs to the church in Gjakova.

The President, Hashim Thaçi, wrote on Facebook today that he feels and shares the pain with all Kosovar mothers for losing their most beloved ones.

"I assure them and all Kosovar mothers as well as all citizens of Kosovo that the criminals and murderers who have committed crimes will never be able to return to Kosovo. Wherever they are, they will not be quiet until they are accountable to justice," Thaci wrote.
