PristinaÂ – Arms, ammunition and other military supplies from the old Yugoslav army were confiscated during a raid on a Kosovo police officerâ€™s home.
A report from Kosovoâ€™s Police Forces revealed that two AK-47 Kalishnikovs, an air-gun, 558 cartridges and other military supplies from the old Yugoslav army were found in the house of 44-year-old Vlade Nedeljkovic, an ethnic Serb.
Suspicions were raised that the currently suspended officer might have been a reservist of the old Serbian army.
Kosovoâ€™s Police spokesman, Veton Elshani, told Balkan Insight that Nedeljkovic is under arrest.
â€œKosovo is a country which has experienced a war recently and some 300,000 different types of arms are still around Kosovo. Nedeljkovic is a member of Kosovoâ€™s Police Forces but he is not reservist of the former Serbian Army,â€ Elshani told Balkan Insight.
During his examination by police interrogators, Nedeljkovic said the military ware has remained in his home since the 1999 war.
Nedeljkovic served as a police officer in the Kosovo Serb enclave of Gracanica.
After the February 17 declaration of independence from Serbia, Nedeljkovic, along with his Serb colleagues, had boycotted the mutli-ethnic Police Forces and demanded United Nations supervision of the force.
