The Republic of Kosovo has become a member of the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) by submitting its participation documents.
The documents of accession were presented by Deputy Foreign Minister of Kosovo Krisnik Ahmeti, Chairman of the Governmental Committee on Missing Persons Andin Hoti, and Kosovo’s Ambassador to the Netherlands Dren Doley.
Kosovo’s Prime Minister, Albin Kurti, has stated that membership will help ensure greater justice for the thousands of Kosovars and their families who went missing during the Serbian genocide. Kurti wrote on his account on social media: “Our membership will help us achieve more justice for the thousands of Kosovars and their families who were forcibly disappeared during the genocide committed by Serbia.” He didn’t use his expressions.
The ICMP is an intergovernmental organization dealing with people who have disappeared in situations such as armed conflicts, human rights violations, natural disasters, organized crime and illegal immigration.
It is estimated that more than 1,600 people, mostly Albanians, died in the Kosovo war, but their bodies have not been found yet.
