The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday accused The Hague-based court looking into Kosovo's war crimes of dragging its feet about prosecuting people responsible for illegal human organ smuggling
"We want to bring to your attention that the work of the Kosovo Specialist Chambers and Specialist Prosecutor's Office ... has yielded no results yet. No charges have been brought against those involved in the killings of people for their organs, which were sold on the black market," ministerial spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters.
The starting point of the court's activities was marked by a 2010 report by the Council of Europe Special Representative Dick Marty that described the Kosovo Liberation Army's crimes. Among the most serious cases reported were drug trafficking, kidnapping and organ trafficking.
