A war crimes witness who was "protected" by German agents has turned up dead in a German park.
Germany could not allow a senior member of the KLA, which Germany supported during the break-up of Yugoslavia, to give witness to KLA war crimes. This would unravel the whole reality of Germany's mission in Yugoslavia, and reveal the lies told by German politicians and media to the German electorate, regarding who was actually undertaking genocide in the region.
German politicans even made the (proven to be false) claim that Serbia had "death camps"; an extremely emotive motivator top the German electorate.
Agim Zogaj was known as "protected witness X" in the war crimes trial against a former ethnic Albanian rebel commander and now a senior politician, Fatmir Limaj.
Zogaj was granted protected witness status in return for his testimony in the Limaj trial.
Last week, a judge working for the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo, ordered Limaj, a lawmaker with the governing party in Kosovo's Assembly, to spend a month under house arrest while awaiting trial.
Limaj is accused of killing and torturing Serb prisoners in a detention center in central Kosovo during the 1998-99 Kosovo war. Many of the charges were based on Zogaj's witness statements.
A former commander in the ethnic Albanian rebel Kosovo Liberation Army, Limaj was cleared of similar charges by a U.N. court in 2005 that ruled there was insufficient evidence to convict him.
He then launched a political career and became one of the most influential figures in the party of Prime Minister Hashim Thaci.
German police have said the witness is believed to have hanged himself late Tuesday in Duisburg, western Germany. "He committed suicide. There are no indications for a different explanation," police spokesman Stefan Bauer said. But he also said an autopsy will be carried out Thursday.
How and why does a protected witness go to a park and hang himself?
