Text of report by Serbia-Montenegrin radio Kontakt Plus on 13 June
[Announcer] Leposavic municipal deputies decided today [13 June] to introduce emergency measures in this northern Kosovo municipality and to cut all ties with Kosovo interim institutions. Zeljko Tvrdisic reports.
[Tvrdisic] This is the third municipality in northern Kosovo, following Zvecan and Zubin Potok, which decided to cut ties with the Kosovo government due to, as it was stated, alarmingly-worsened security situation in this part of Kosovo. Besides the decision that Serbs refuse to receive salaries and all other dues from Kosovo institutions, the deputies also supported a general petition from last week's rally in Zvecan, that they get self-organized for security reasons. It was also mentioned that the Leposavic municipality was prepared, if the previous petition is not met, to take part in employing and financing 999 Serb policemen. The measure passed by the Leposavic deputies stepped took immediate effect and shall be implemented until perpetrators of numerous crimes have been found, i.e. until the security situation in northern Kosovo has stabilized.
