EU Kosovo court issued guilty verdict in first war crimes case
Meagan McElroy at 12:00 AM ET

On March 3, 2009, a court under the European Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX) issued its first verdict in a war crimes case against Kosovo Albanian Gani Gashi for atrocities committed during the 1998-1999 Kosovo-Serbia conflict. The Kosovo War pitted the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) against Serbian police forces and the Yugoslav military. There have been numerous allegations of war crimes in the aftermath of the conflict against all participating sides. EULEX, charged with aiding the restoration of rule of law in Kosovo, began its operations in December 2008. EULEX has since arrested, charged, and sentenced various war criminals.
