Spiegel: Tom Kenigs doubts success of U.N. Mission in Kosovo
October 11, 1999



Bonn, Oct 11 (Tanjug) - Tom Kenigs, a German, charged by the United Nations to form a civilian administration in Kosovo is increasingly doubtful about his job, the weekly der Spiegel reported Monday from Hamburg.

Kenigs, who was one of the closest assistants and friends of the leader of the German Greens, Jozef Fischer, supported last spring NATO's aggression on Serbia, but now - Der Spiegel said, he is no longer sure whether he did the right thing.

The reason for Kenigs's doubts are the crimes committed on a daily basis by ethnic Albanian extremists and terrorists who ruthlessly burn, loot, persecute and murder all who are not Albanians, the Hamburg weekly reported.

"I often ask myself if I am on the right side," the U.N. representative was quoted as saying by Der Spiegel. Kenigs is even more doubtful about the chances for the successful completion of the job he has been charged to do.

Der Spiegel describes the atmosphere of fear in Kosovo - not only among Serbs, but also among ethnic Albanians who have different opinions from "KLA" leaders.
