Key quotes from the 41-page U.N. indictment against Slobodan Milosevic and four other senior officials, charged with crimes against humanity and violations of the laws and customs of war:

— "Throughout Kosovo, the forces of the FRY (Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) and Serbia have looted and pillaged the personal and commercial property belonging to Kosovo Albanians forced from their homes. Policemen, soldiers, and military officers have used wholesale searches, threats of force and acts of violence to rob Kosovo Albanians of money and valuables, and in a systematic manner, authorities at the FRY border have stolen personal vehicles and other property from Kosovo Albanians being deported from the province."

— "Throughout Kosovo, the forces of the FRY and Serbia have engaged in a systematic campaign of destruction of property owned by Kosovo Albanian civilians. This has been accomplished through the widespread shelling of towns and villages; the burning of homes, farms, and businesses; and the destruction of personal property. As a result of these orchestrated actions, villages, towns and entire regions have been made uninhabitable for Kosovo Albanians."
