Head of Serbia’s Government Office for Kosovo and Metohija said he would press charges for the death threats he received after, as he said, he dared to ask a question about the murder of Kosovo Serb opposition leader Oliver Ivanovic.
Speaking for Prva TV, Marko Djuric explained that he asked if it was true that Rada Trajkovic, Chairperson of the European Movement for Kosovo and Metohija, said in her testimony that Serbia was linked to the murder of Oliver Ivanovic, which was followed by threats that he received through social networks.
Ivanovic was shot dead in front of his party offices in North Mitrovica in mid-January 2018 and investigation into his death is still ongoing.
Djuric also said he wished that the investigation was going faster but that all it showed so far was that Pristina institutions do not cooperate.
On the other hand, Trajkovic said she would sue the tabloid ‘Alo’ and Djuric for saying that she jeopardised this investigation with her testimony and by her saying that Serbia was linked to the murder.
‘Alo’ daily recently carried that Trajkovic slandered Serbia in her contact with Pristina investigative bodies regarding the investigation into the death of the Serb opposition leader. Djuric tweeted that he could only express “the most open disgust and contempt” towards a person who “slanders” his or her own country.
