Report adopted by Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights, body of Council of Europe[edit]

Recent report adopted by the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights of Council of Europe shed new light at the nature of KLA. The findings of the rapporteur Mr Dick Marty were hailed by the former prosecutor of the Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia, Mrs Del Ponte. As such I believe that they express official attitude of the Committee towards the events on Kosovo and the role of Mr Thaci and KLA, and these should be reflected in the WP article. It was followed by all major media outlets including BBC, Gardian, The Times, etc.. These statements were previously indicated in the book of Mrs Del Ponte. She as a prosecutor of the UN criminal tribunal had opportunity to conduct investigation on Kosovo. Furthermore, report by Dick Marty cites intelligence data of NATO member states as a source. By adopting the report the appropriate Committee of the CoE gave credibility to Mr Marty's findings and his sources and it became official. These are not only the words of a single person, but a legal body and their appointed rapporteur in charge for the investigation which took 2 years. As such they need to be highlighted in the WP article on the KLA. The CoE is the most important institution for fostering human rights in Europe and its opinions have heavy weight. I ask the superior editor to adjudge on this issue. I also invite everyone involved to read the lengthy report of Mr Marty.


Foreign support (validity of sources?)[edit]

Regarding alleged German support, the "Foreign support" section makes use of an article written by a "French expert" in "The European", a British weekly that seems as an extremely unreliable source, see http://norumbega.co.uk/2008/06/30/the-european/ Also the Sunday Times article, regarding alleged US and UK support, cannot traced on the Times Online site. Can someone verify if these articles do really exist? Thx.

Radical Islamist?[edit]

Please immediatly erase this lying, the KLA is probably a terrorist organization, but it had not islamist ideology but albanian nationalism, while the motto is "the religion of albanian people is to be albanian". The flag is this of Skanderbeg, consideres by the pope of his time as "an athlete of the christ". All christians albanian are supporters of the independance of Kosovo, it's just a problem of nationalism, islam has nothing role in this. ANd the source of this affirmation doesn't exist, the link drive to nothing.

Thank you.

Radical Terrorist?[edit]

This is stupid. The KLA just fought against Serbia because the albanians were under pressure. The Allies who fought against Adolf Hitler, they also werent terrorists. The KlA just wanted to protect the albanians. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.130.161.115 (talk) 13:04, 6 July 2012 (UTC)


Yes, they fought not for Islam, just for opportunity to make an independent drug market in Europe. 91.196.99.176 (talk) 17:37, 5 July 2012 (UTC)


KLA is a terrorist organization. They had no reason to protect Albanians from anything, because Albanians were not jeopardized. The sole numbers of Albanian immigrants on Kosovo from 1945-1990 proves that. If it were different they wouldn't have come there is such a large numbers. KLA are irredentists which use guns,bombs, fear and terror to obtain their goal. Mike. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.148.82.152 (talk) 17:09, 22 June 2013 (UTC)


Albanians were not jeopardized?So the expelling of Albanians from workplaces and locking of schools leaving Albanians to educate secretly at homes and serbs enabling a almost military regime in the streets.I would have liked you to live in Kosovo at that time to see how albanians were treated and not have sources and references from Serbian or Serbian-supporting websites.Yes,the KLA was listed as a terrorist organization for a period but they were not radical terrorists.
