Chariton, was abducted. -Now - a spiritual center gathering the remaining Orthodox people from Prizren and around.

Ceku’s request denied | 09:58 April 20 | B92

Agim Ceku

PRISTINA -- Bishop Artemije has denied Agim Ceku’s request to attend Easter church services in Gracanica.

The Rasko-Prizren Bishop reminded the Kosovo Prime Minister that he has been living himself as a refugee for the past seven years and that his residence and cathedral were burned to the ground in March 2004, along with many other landmarks of the Orthodox Church.

“We told him that, considering that we have been living with the status of refugees for nearly a full seven years, outside our residence in Prizren, which was burned in the March 17, 2004 riots, along with our cathedral and many other holy places, we are not able to welcome Mr. Ceku before we have returned to our restored residence, and our people have return to their homes.” Bishop Artemije said.

Ceku sent a letter yesterday to Bishop Artemije asking whether he could attend the Easter liturgy in Gracanica and wish all Orthodox Christians a happy Easter.

Kosovo President Fatmir Sejdiju wrote and sent a similar request to the monastery in Visoki Decani.

Interestingly, KLA commander Agim Ceku had previous ties with the U.S. military. The Nation reported,
Ceku refined his brutality as a general in the US-backed Croatian Army during the Balkans war and was trained by Military Professional Resources Inc., a private paramilitary firm founded in 1987 and based in Alexandria, Virginia, with former high-ranking US generals and NATO officials on its board.
Canadian soldiers have also witnessed the results of Ceku's prior actions in Croatia, which included the rape and murder of civilians, and attacks on refugee columns.After the war, Ceku was placed in command of the UN-backed "Kosovo Protection Force," where he escalated attacks against the Serbian population.
