Serbs in north to stage protest over courts

Employees of the Serbian judiciary will stage a peaceful protest in northern Kosovska Mitrovica on Tuesday, it has been announced.

The gathering comes in reaction to announcements by the Kosovo Albanian authorities in Priština authorities that “Kosovo judges and prosecutors would be reinstated in the District Court”.

The protest will be staged in front of the gates of the District and the Municipal Court in northern Kosovska Mitrovica, which currently employs only international judges and EULEX prosecutors.

Serbian State Secretary for Kosovo-Metohija Oliver Ivanović told Tanjug on Monday that increasingly frequent announcements of Priština’s new unilateral moves are causing disturbance among the Serb population in northern Kosovo.

The announcement of court takeover and the beginning of operation of Pristina-organized court is nothing but an attempt of destabilization aimed at causing an incident among Serbs, Ivanović assessed.

He expressed belief that the Kosovo government is looking to cause an incident and that all its recent moves are guided by this intention.

He called on EULEX and representatives of the international community to prevent such behavior by Priština officials.
