The Bytyqi Family
The Bytyqi Brothers are survived by their parents, Ahmet and Bahrije; their brothers Ilir, Enver, and Fatose; and sister Bukurije. Since Ylli, Agron, and Mehmet’s disappearances and deaths in 1999, the family has been relentless in their pursuit of accountability in the case.
Fatose Bytyqi, a manager of a 7-Eleven in Riverhead, New York; and his brother Ilir, an executive chef at a Long Island country club, have been especially persistent. Repeatedly traveling back and forth to Washington DC and Belgrade, they have met face-to-face with high-ranking officials from the State Department, DOJ, FBI, and even Serbian and Kosovar Presidents and Prime Ministers.
