The Resolution needs to be adopted by the Senate.
The Resolution was submitted in April 2018, by the U.S. Representative for New York's 1st congressional district, Congressman Lee Zeldin, while the House Foreign Affairs Committee of the US Congress adopted a resolution on July 17, 2018, urging Belgrade to prosecute the killers of the three Bytyqi brothers.
Senator Zeldin is, along with the one of the most prominent Albanian lobbyist, Congressman Eliot Engel, the „sponsor" of the resolution supporting Bytyqi brothers, which encourages Serbia to find their killers and bring them to justice.
Ylli, Agron, and Mehmet Bytyqi are US citizens of Albanian origin, murdered in Serbia in 1999.
As reported by Pristina daily Bota sot, the resolution was readopted with the aim of exerting pressure on Serbia to bring the killers of Bytyqi brothers to justice.
They underlined that they will keep fighting for justice until it's served. We want to provide that the perpetrators of this crime will not remain free.
On this day, 20 years ago, Serbian authorities had killed three U.S. citizens and dumped them into the mass grave. "We will seek justice until it's served", it is said in a brief statement on the Bytyqi family website.
Aleksandar Vucic told the Serbian parliament on Monday evening that "there is no evidence of who committed the murder" of Ylli, Agron, and Mehmet Bytyqi - US citizens of Albanian origin who were killed in Serbia in 1999.
Vucic said that without evidence, no one be arrested based "only on media reports and lawyers' claims", because "Serbia is a serious state".
