TO: Ministers of Foreign Affairs, OSCE Ministerial Council
Vienna, 25 September 2000. At a briefing to the OSCE in Vienna on 25 September, the International Helsinki Committee and its members committees from Serbia, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia and Bulgaria, called attention to the plight of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Balkans. The briefing took place as part of an EU-funded project in the framework of the Stability Pact.
Vienna, Prishtina, Belgrade, Podgorica, Tirana 26 July 2000. The International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights (IHF) and its Committees in Kosovo, Albania, Serbia and Montenegro are deeply concerned that ethnic violence against Serbs and other minorities in Kosovo is not being properly and efficiently prevented and investigated by the responsible authorities. Continuation and non-prevention of ethnically and politically motivated violence could lead to deep and long-lasting ethnic hatred that could result in further conflict and perhaps even more widespread violence.
