Statement on the 23rd Anniversary of the Murder of Bytyqi Brothers


Today marks 23 years since three U.S.  citizens, Ylli, Agron, and Mehmet Bytyqi, were executed while in the custody of Serbian special police. Another year has gone by, and the grieving Bytyqi family has found no closure. Another year and the Serbian justice system still has not held anyone accountable for this horrendous war crime.

We will not forget this crime and once again call on Serbia to hold accountable those who committed and covered up these murders.
