“Should Kosovo become independent, a fate that is supported even by Switzerland, one cannot but ask what will become of the remaining Rroma in the region. It is fairly clear that if the KFOR leaves, they will be evicted. But if the KFOR stays, this will most probably nevertheless happen. One can thus on the one hand expect case by case eviction, where single families are targeted and kicked out as well as a repeat of events such as the ones of March 2004. Such events need almost no pretext to occur.”
