"I can tell you that, according to our contacts with the special prosecutor's office, we now are on the deciding stage, when they are deciding on whether to press charges or to drop them. Above all, it depends on the quantity and quality of the evidence collected on the crimes," Milovan Drecun, the chairman of the Serbian National Assembly's Committee on Kosovo-Metohija, told Sputnik.
According to the Serbian government commission, 1,658 people are still missing 20 years after the conflict, about 540 of whom are Serbs.
In 1999, the armed confrontation between KLA, the ethnic-Albanian militia, which had supported Kosovo's independence since the 1990s, and the Serbian army and police led to NATO airstrikes against what was then Yugoslavia (now Serbia and Montenegro).
Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008. Its sovereignty has been recognized by over 100 UN members. However, Serbia, China, Russia and a number of other countries have not recognized its independence.
