On March 3rd at 4:0opm at 1539 Longworth HOB, the U.S. Congress’ Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission will host a screening of The Unidentified and a panel featuring the Fatose Bytyqi and the Bytyqi case.
The Unidentified is a documentary film by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) that explores some of the most brutal and unresolved war crimes of the Kosovo war. Based on two years’ of research, the film focuses on attacks on villages around the town of Pec, and identifies commanders and officers alleged to have given the orders and to have removed the victims’ bodies to mass graves in Serbia. Among those named is a prime suspect in the post-war executions of three American citizens and brothers — the Bytyqi Brothers—a crime that is the subject of a pending concurrent resolution in the House of Representatives (H. Con. Res 51). No person has ever been found guilty of these cover up operations or the Bytyqi case and no commander has been found guilty of ordering the underlying crimes.
We hope to see you at the event on March 3rd.
Also special thanks to Tanya Domi, for hosting a screening and panel on The Unidentified and Bytyqi case on February 22, 2016 at Columbia University’s Harriman Institute.
