Expected chase after the Kosovo Serbs has started with the arrest of Goran Stanisic, a Serb who was apprehended on Saturday at the Jarinje crossing for alleged war crimes, Head of Serbia Government’s Office for Kosovo, Marko Djuric said on Sunday.

Djuric said that, according to available information, Stanisic was arrested in the afternoon while he was with his wife and sister, and then transported to Pristina.

He stressed that this arrest was intended to create “a false image of Serbs as criminals” in the international institutions and media, but also to create some sort of a counterbalance after Kosovo officials, whom Djuric called “leaders of terrorist Kosovo Liberation Army,” were summoned to The Hague.

Stanisic was visiting Kosovo quite often and never experienced problems at the crossings. Djuric assessed the arrest was another in a series of attempts to intimidate Serbs in order to finish the ethnic cleansing of Kosovo, especially its northern parts.

“We harshly condemn the arrest of Goran Stanisic and activation of some confidential lists and false indictments by temporary Pristina institutions, and we demand his immediate release,” said Djuric.
