The Kosovo Police, in cooperation with the Police Inspectorate (PIK) and investigators, arrested three officers in the north of the divided Mitrovica town, mostly populated by local Serbs, the KoSSev website reported.

The apprehension was ordered by the Special Prosecutors’ Office and was a continuation of the operation “Smuggling” from last May.

A total of of 12 police officers were arrested during the operation since it started five months ago.

Those apprehended on Thursday include a police lieutenant, a sergeant, and a policeman, suspected of “organised crime” and “the abuse of office.”
