Top policeman says Kosovo should not be in Interpol Izvor: MUP

Serbia’s top policeman told Interpol officials that Kosovo’s membership in the international police organization would not benefit Serbia or Interpol.

Serbian Police Director Vladimir Rebić told Interpol President Meng Hongwei and Secretary General Jürgen Stock that Serbia insists on its territorial integrity, adding that granting Kosovo membership in the organization would not be in its or Serbia’s interest. “We will talk to all Interpol members to convince them that Kosovo’s possible membership would not be in Interpol’s interest,” he said.

Rebić told the officials that the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MUP) wants every arrest warrant issued by the Serbian judiciary returned to the Interpol system. Serbia has issued warrants for the arrest of a number of Kosovo officials on charges of war crimes.

Several Kosovo officials, the most recent of who was current Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, were arrested but later freed under those warrants.    

Speaking to reporters on Thursday (April 12) Internal Affairs Minister Nebojša Stefanović said all international warrants issued by Serbian courts had been returned to the Interpol system with the exception of the warrants for Kosovo President Hashim Thaci and Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj.
