War crimes prosecutor for Serbia Vladimir VukčevićNews has come that Serbia's war crimes prosecutor Vladimir Vukčević (read here on B92 (in English)) has received a death threat from fellow Serbs in the diapora, specifically from America, the city of Illinois.

Not only does the threatening letter brand Vladimir a "traitor", it also disparagingly denies the atrocity that happened in Srebrenica in July 1995 and includes a picture of him with a swastika on his forehead, along with insults at his family's expense.

I'm writing this post, because this death threat came from my fellow Serbs in the diaspora. And as a diapora Serb, I wish to write this post deliberately to voice stance, that I stand by Vladimir Vukčević, who is doing an important job dealing with crimes of such gravity that occurred during the terrible wars that destroyed so many lives throughout Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo during the nineties, and that I don't agree with the likes of those who have sent such a cheap, offensive and yet clearly uninformed letter to someone of such stature and responsibility.

Therefore, as a Serb living in the diaspora, I wish to state loudly and clearly:
