Aleksandar Martinovic, the chief of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) Deputy Club, added another ‘title’ to his portfolio – the Government appointed him to the Council of Pristina University currently based in northern Mitrovica, the Insajder reported on Wednesday.

Besides him, ten officials of the Belgrade-supported Serb List, a Kosovo Serbs’ political party, including Goran Rakic, Northern Mitrovica Mayor, and two former ministers of Kosovo’s Government from the Serb community, were also appointed members to the University and several faculties’ councils, the independent Insajder production website said.

Serbia’s Education Minister Mladen Sarcevic said all appointments were legal.

Apart from his political duty, Martinovic is a professor at the Law School in the northern city of Novi Sad, a professor at the High Medical School in the central town of Cuprija and is reported to have been allowed to teach at the Medical Sciences Faculty in the central city of Kragujevac.

The members of Pristina University have the same status as those in Serbia and are paid from Serbia’s budget and have a ‘Kosovo bonus.’

Insajder said there are no public data how much money was allocated for that bonus, but President Aleksandra Vucic said in 2018 it was 71 million Euros per year.
