Milinčić Danilo (born in 1960. village Samodreža , Vučitrn - killed on June 2, 1982 . was a Serb from Kosovo who was brutally murdered by neighbors of Albanian nationality June 2, 1982. On his own property cowardly shot in the heart.
Danilo Milincic case is similar to the case of Djordje Martinovic , in that the perpetrators of the murder were not punished.
The situation in Kosovo in late 1970 's and early 1980 's was not at all pleasant. On the contrary, there was a great deal of tensions between Serbs and Albanians. The period 1970 - 1985, according to court indictments and investigations, of which there were over 2,200 cases of crimes (robbery, assault with grievous bodily harm and murder) 92% of the victims were Serbs . The victims or their families filed complaints in state institutions of Kosovo and Metohija, and Yugoslavia , detailing the problems they have and what dangers they are threatened by, but the authorities ignored them.
In April 1963 . , the Region of Kosovo and Metohija is given the status of autonomous province , and 5 years after in November 1968 . the name Metohija (meaning church land ) was dropped.
In 1974 . Yugoslavia adopted a new constitution, under which Kosovo and Metohija is granted the status of a federal unit, and the capital of Kosovo and Metohija, Pristina given wide powers in respect of: education , police , prosecutors ... This lasted until March 28, 1989 . , when the Assembly of SR Serbia abolished the status of the province of Vojvodina and Kosovo.
In 1981 . In Kosovo emerge a large demonstration where Albanians originally sought a republic within Yugoslavia , and very soon after total independant Kosovo and separation from Yugoslavia. Albanian government supported the protests of its compatriots in Kosovo in 1981. In almost all Serbian villages in Kosovo, there was fear and tensions, because the Albanians burned Serb grain, stoned houses, windows, attacked the Serbian children while they go to school and so on.
Danilo Milinčić was a farmer in the village Samodrežna, Vučitrna, who lived from livestock and farming . On his farm he lived with his mother Danica, wife Radmila and three children. Danilo has two brothers, Pavle and Miroslav.
The farm of MILINČIĆ: house, two cows, two heifers, 15 sheep, six pigs ...
In June 1968 the father of Danilo Milincic was also killed by their neighbors the Albanians , beaten to death with metal bars. Also his murder still unpunished. When Daniel's mother Danica went to ask the Court of Justice for the murder of her husband, they sent her away with a comment to leave Kosovo, and that she have no rights here. And that the case of her husband was barred "outdated". One brother lived in Vučitrna until Danilos assassination.
Daniel's mother, Danica Milincic was active participant during World War II,
June 2, 1982 . Milinčić Danilo and his mother Danica had a lot of work to do on their farm. Danilo was trying to give the cattle water when among the cattle he saw 4 neighbouring Albanians and he asked them politely to leave the property.
This turned out to an aggressive incident and meanwhile more Albanians gathered
arround the 5 arguing neighbours. The crowd was watching while 3 family members of Mohamed Ferat were Holding Danilo and Mohamed cowardly beat Danilo. The ONLY one rushing to Danilos help was his mother.
When she reached to Danilo, Mohamed picked up a gun and shot Danilo in the chest and wounded the mother in the shoulder.
During the entire incident, the murderer Muhamed Mujo Ferat was cussing at Danica and telling her to get out from "Albania" "This is Albania and the President here is Enver Hoxha" "This is not Serbia" and with these statements followed lots of threats towards her life as well.
After this incident Danica went to Belgrade to try to seek justice.
The trial of Danilo`s murderers lasted several days, and each time when there was litigation, the court was attended by several hundred Albanians. They all spit and threatened Danilos mother, Danica, and his wife Radmila who was then pregnant.
Public prosecutors calls the murder of Danilo Milincic "Crime with hostile motives towards Yugoslavia , done with premeditation. "
Interesting in this case are:
First, that the judgment was never executed, namely bringing killers Muhammad Muja Ferat and his accomplice to prison .
Second, that the verdict was read out in court in the Albanian language (although according to the Constitution of Yugoslavia . the official language throughout Yugoslavia as well as Kosovo was Serbo-Croatian ), so none of Milincic understood what the verdict was.
Danilo Milinčić was buried in the courtyard of the Orthodox Church in Vučitrna . The monument was raised by his family.
1. Muhamed Ferat called Mujo
2. son of Mohammed Ferat
3. nephew of Mohammed Ferat
4. nephew of Mohammed Ferat
After the unpunished murders the exodus of Serbs from the municipality Vučitrna continued , because people felt very insecure and fearful, that they will be attacked. Officials in the provincial institutions of Province of Kosovo, were of Albanian nationality and very hostile towards Serbs. Even Danica Milinčić, which husband and son were killed by the Albanians , was told to go to Belgrade, and never return, and that she can not sell her property. She went to Belgrade to seek justice for her murdered son, and was in Belgrade a month. Then she returned to her estate in Samodreza. The next year and a half she suffered a lot of pressure and blackmail, received death threats, to the end of January 1984 . when she definitely moved out from Kosovo and Metohija.
Daniel's wife Radmila Milinčić after the assassination of her husband, she went to the place of Kosovo Polje , and worked there as a teacher.
