ASSASSINATION OF SERBIAN PRIME MINISTER ZORAN DJINDJIC



Wednesday, March 12, 2003


ASSASSINATION OF SERBIAN PRIME MINISTER ZORAN DJINDJIC
HON. BENJAMIN L. CARDIN
OF MARYLAND
EXTENSION OF REMARKS

(Mr. CARDIN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)

Mr. CARDIN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today with a heavy heart to condemn in the strongest possible terms the assassination of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic.

As a Member of Congress, I express my condolences to the government of Serbia and Montenegro and to the family of the late Prime Minister. Mr. Djindjic was one of the driving forces behind the extradition of Slobodan Milosevic to the Hague for war crimes, and also favored increased political and economic cooperation with the West.

Mr. Speaker, I think it is our responsibility to encourage the government of Serbia and Montenegro to hold all of those responsible for the assassination accountable and to continue their work for economic reform and full cooperation with the War Crimes Tribunal, including the turning over of those indictees who still remain at large and cooperation on the witnesses and the information that is needed.

Again, Mr. Speaker, we offer our condolences to the family.
