In 1981, in the monastery of the Holy Trinity in Musutiste the Albanians blinded a bull belonging to the monastery. They rammed a rake into the stomach of a cow which was in calf and killed her. The same year they drove nails into the testicles of the rams belonging to the monastery; they also cut down the monastery's forest. The Albanians of the village Grazdel waited in ambush for the nuns to beat them up.
The nuns dared not go about freely with their work on their land. The
Albanians forcibly removed building material from the yard of the monastery. Nuns Vera and Angelina were viciously beaten. Albanian youths beat up nun Stanka and attacked and attempted to rape nun Heruvima, aged 50.
