Já há algum tempo que não escrevia sobre o Kosovo, mas quem quiser saber a minha opinião, basta escrever a palavra Kosovo em "pesquisar este blog" e dar-lhe-á 14 resultados, referentes às entradas em que, por um motivo ou outro, falei neste tema.
Tendo em conta o que eu disse anteriormente, não fui certamente surpreendido por esta notícia do Público, sobre a acusação, num relatório do Conselho da Europa, feita ao primeiro-ministro do Kosovo de actividades criminosas na recolha ilegal de órgãos humanos. O relatório, que pode ser lido aqui, O relatório diz coisas que qualquer observador imparcial sabia. Por exemplo:
13. The appalling crimes committed by Serbian forces, which stirred up very strong feelings worldwide, gave rise to a mood reflected as well in the attitude of certain international agencies, according to which it was invariably one side that were regarded as the perpetrators of crimes and the other side as the victims, thus necessarily innocent. The reality is less clear-cut and more complex.
14. The Parliamentary Assembly strongly reaffirms the need for an absolutely uncompromising fight against impunity for the perpetrators of serious human rights violations, and wishes to point out that the fact that these were committed in the context of a violent conflict could never justify a decision to refrain from prosecuting anyone who has committed such acts (see Resolution 1675 (2009)).
15. There cannot and must not be one justice for the winners and another for the losers. Whenever a conflict has occurred, all criminals must be prosecuted and held responsible for their illegal acts, whichever side they belonged to and irrespective of the political role they took on.
Facto é que a NATO permitiu que os combatentes do UÇK tivessem durante bastante tempo mão livre sobre o território, tal como o relatório o reconhece:
9. During the decisive phase of the armed conflict, NATO took action in the form of air strikes, while land operations were conducted by the KLA, de facto allies of the international forces. Following the departure of the Serbian authorities, the international bodies responsible for security in Kosovo very much relied on the political forces in power in Kosovo, most of them former KLA leaders.
10. The international organisations in place in Kosovo favoured a pragmatic political approach, taking the view that they needed to promote short-term stability at any price, thereby sacrificing some important principles of justice. For a long time little was done to follow-up evidence implicating KLA members in crimes against the Serbian population and against certain Albanian Kosovars. Immediately after the conflict ended, in effect, when the KLA had virtually exclusive control on the ground, many scores were settled between different factions and against those considered, without any kind of trial, to be traitors because they were suspected of having collaborated with the Serbian authorities previously in place.
Sempre fui contra a intervenção da NATO do Kosovo porque, na prática, ela nada resolveu, apenas criou um estado pária e falhado que suga dinheiro aos contribuintes europeus e serve como plataforma do banditismo internacional.
