KFOR: Legal police action, no threat to citizens Izvor: N1

The NATO-led KFOR declared as legal the Kosovo police operation in the northern part of the divided Mitrovica town with the majority of Serbs, during which four men were arrested in connection to the investigation into a Serb politician murder, a Force's statement said on Friday

Early on Friday, Kosovo's special police ROSU unit entered the northern Mitrovica and arrested four Serbs suspected of involvement in the January 16 assassination of Oliver Ivanovic, who led a Serb political party which did not have Belgrade's support.



Here is the latest KFOR’s statement:

“Concerning the current situation in Mitrovica, KFOR informs that early this morning Kosovo Police conducted a police operation, following an arrest warrant issued by Pristina Court in relation to the investigation of Oliver Ivanovic‘s murder.
Kosovo Police arrested four persons in North Mitrovica and then went back to their barracks.
There was no unlawful operation or military action, and there has never been any threat to the safety and security of the citizens.
KFOR confirms that what happened was only a police operation and of Kosovo Security Force or any other military force was deployed to the North of Kosovo.
The situation remains stable and under control on the ground, although KFOR is aware that there are increasing tensions at the political level due to some international and economic
developments.
Because of the political sensitivity of the moment, Commander KFOR invites all the parties to deal with the disputes peacefully and responsibly, without the use of force or violence.
However, KFOR continues monitoring the situation and maintains its presence on the ground, hopefully with no need to intervene.”
