March 2013 marks nine years since the March pogrom in Kosovo and Metohija. In March 2004 dozens of people lost their lives in the outbreak of Albanian violence:
900 people were beaten up and seriously injured;
935 Serbian, Roma and Ashkali houses were set on fire and vandalized;
3,870 inhabitants were expelled;
6 towns and 10 villages were ethnically cleansed;
35 religious sites of the Serbian Orthodox Church were demolished and destroyed, of which 18 monuments of particular cultural significance;
several Orthodox cemeteries were desecrated;
a large number of registry books, testifying to the centuries-old persistence of Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija, were destroyed;
33 individual acts of violence involved 51,000 people;
To this day, no one has been brought to justice for these crimes!
Nine Serbs lost their lives in the March pogrom: Dragan Nedeljković (Prizren), Zlatibor Trajković (Kosovo Polje), Dobrivoje and Borivoje Stolić (Drajkovce), Borivoje Spasojevic and Jana Tučev (Kosovska Mitrovica), Tonce Milosavljevic and Nenad Vesić (Lipljan), Slobodan Perić (Gnjilane).
