The alleged offenses were committed from September 1998 through June 1999, UNMIK said, adding that all the victims were Kosovo Albanian civilians. . The accused, who are also Kosovo Albanians, are alleged to have committed a series of illegal abductions, physical attacks and in some cases, murders, that fall under Section 142 of the Criminal Code on War Crimes. The defendants at the time of the alleged criminal activity were members of the Kosovo Liberation Army Military Police, operating in the general area of Podujevo Municipality, the UN mission said. The arrests relate to the alleged criminal conduct of these individuals and are not directed at the organizations with which they were affiliated at that time, or with which they are currently employed.
