Belgrade: Pristina attempts to divide Serb won’t succeed Izvor: Tanjug / Dragan Kujundžić

The head of Serbia’s Government Office for Kosovo said on Friday the local Serbs would remain united and gathered within the Serb List and Serbia and told Pristina “its political tricks” to divide the Serbs and take control on their territory would not succeed, the Beta news agency reported.

Marko Djuric told the state RTS TV that the dismissal of the Serb members of Kosovo Government who spoke about the 1999 NATO bombing and the Racak massacre was an introduction of the verbal delict.

"That (the division of the Serbs) won’t happen. They will continue to fight for their rights. They did it in even tougher conditions and won’t allow (Kosovo’s Prime Minister) Ramus Haradinaj or anybody else to scare them,” Djuric said.

Haradinaj named a Serb Adriana Hodzic the Minister of Local Self-governing Administration on Friday to replace the dismissed Todosijevic, the KoSSev web site reported.

Ivan Todosijevic, an official of the Serb List, supported by Belgrade and holding power in northern Kosovo, has said that the massacre in Racak which is viewed as precipitating the NATO intervention in the then Yugoslavia was fabricated. He was dismissed by Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj over the statement, saying that hate speech by any minister would not be tolerated.

 Vesna Mikic, former Justice Minister Deputy was dismissed for calling NATO bombing “a genocide over the Serbs. "

Djuric said that the decision of the Serb List to take part in an early municipal vote in northern Kosovo with Serb majority was brought to prevent the Albanians to take power in those places.    

Rada Trajkovic from the European Movement from Kosovo said that ahead of local elections in the north "a horrible pressure will be put on the Serbs and that "a branding has already started."

Belgrade considers all Serbs in Kosovo who do not support its policy and are against the Serb List as "traitors" and call the "Haradinaj's Serbs."

The opposition Alliance for Serbia (SzS) and the members of the Serb opposition in Kosovo said the elections should be boycotted and announced the forming of Alliance for Kosovo.
