Aleksandar Vulin, Serbia's Interior Minister, said on Tuesday the state was determined to deal with organised crime and mafia and confirmed President Aleksandar Vucic's statement about the link between some criminals and some country's institutions.

"Aleksandr Vucic never says anything by chance or without evidence. We have information about the link between mafia members and some circles within the authorities, some of whom have already been identified," Vulin said.

"In this country, mafia won't have its state – it's either we or mafia," he told the state RTS TV.

Vulin also said the police were tasked with fighting street crime, prevent the sale of drugs in schools, violence, pickpocketing and other crime which made people feeling unsafe.

Commenting on the latest killing in a Belgrade's shopping mall, Vulin said there was "no safe place when mafia wages war."

"We have two drug cartels – Kavacki and Skaljarski, possibly the most powerful in Europe, and the brutality in their show-downs resembles movies," he added.
