Kosovo police force suspends five Serb officers

The Kosovo Police Service (KPS) command in consultation with the international police command in Kosovo-Metohija has suspended five Serb members of the KPS.

"They have been suspended for obstructing the work of the KPS and international police during the 17 March incidents last year," it was confirmed to SRNA by the KPS information service in Pristina.

Some of the suspended officers confirmed in written statements that they were suspended due to witnessing the causes of the violence and incidents on 17 March.

"We were witness to the gathering of [ethnic] Albanians on the southern side of the River Ibar and the firing of shots from the southern part of Mitrovica when two Serbs in the northern part were casualties," the statements to the investigating bodies say.
