Open Wounds: Human Rights Abuses In Kosovo

Kosovo is a police state. Police raids on homes and marketplaces occur daily and Serbian authorities have stepped up a drive to push Albanians out of Serbian-populated areas. Heavily armed Serbian police, paramilitary troops and regular army forces spread their terror. Mass arrests of Albanians on trumped-up charges are commonplace and, in a society run by brute force and intimidation, few prisoners ever receive a fair trial. In short, the Albanians of Kosovo are struggling to survive.
