BELGRADE, August 12 /SRNA/ - Former Norwegian KFOR officer Christian Cash has said that KFOR is responsible for an attack on a Niš Express bus conducted by Albanians on February 16, 2001, near Podujevo, where 12 Serbs were killed and 43 were wounded, and that he is seeking for forgiveness every day.


Cash, who for the first time came to Kosovo in 2000, says that he arrived at the crime scene one hour and a half after the attack and that he still cannot forget the smell of burnt bodies, rubber, and plastic.

“The attack was our responsibility. We failed to defend Serbs and other minorities in Kosmet /Kosovo and Metohija/. I am seeking for forgiveness every day,” Cash told the Politika daily. He, who is a Lutheran Christian, has recently forwarded an official request to His Holiness the Patriarch of the Serbs Irinej to be converted into Orthodoxy.

He has said that there was evidence that Fljorim Ejupi blew up the bus, but that evidence was destroyed.

“Chief investigator Joe McAllister was very angry at KFOR because a hole on the road created by the explosion was asphalted. Normalization of traffic was an excuse. McAllister wanted to arrest Ejupi, but he in fact worked for the CIA,” Cash said.

He claims that Ejupi did not flee the Bondsteel prison because this is impossible.

“Simply, Ejupi worked for the CIA and was released,” Cash said.

He has said that he also feels responsible for the NATO bombing and for the fact that KFOR failed to protect minorities in Kosmet.

“It is a shame that Norway is treating Serbs in Kosmet this way. We created a refugee crisis and we are now treating refugees this way. I hope that this is why I can sue the then Prime Minister Bondevik, who is calling himself a believer, and in fact is a warmonger. Under the cover of humanitarian intervention, he conducted aggression against Serbia,” Cash said.

He believes that it is possible to sue all the countries which took part in the NATO aggression and stressed that upon the arrival in Kosovo, KFOR should have introduced a curfew, a military law.

“Instead, we wanted to be heroes, liberators. We allowed the terrorist KLA to turn into the Kosovo police force. These are the major mistakes of the international mission,” says Cash.

He has said that he will make a personal effort to have Norway revoke its recognition of self-declared Kosovo, adding that he knows that it will be difficult since this is one of the countries most loyal to NATO.

“I hope one European country will revoke its recognition, maybe France, if Marine Le Pen comes to power, or Italy,” Cash said. /end/sg
