Around 1500 Serbs of Kosovo have protested this afternoon in the commune of Zubin Potok, threatening of suspending cooperation with the EULEX mission.

They call on the international community and EULEX to guarantee unconditional protection for Serbs who are unfairly accused.

They also said that they’re protesting “against fresh accusations addressed against Serbs, threats of imprisonment and growing pressure against Serbs of Kosovo which is being made by EULEX mission”.

Protesters have warned that if the prosecution of Serbs continues, MPs, mayors and communal councilors will reconsider their participation in the institutions of Kosovo.

The protest has been organized by the so called Leading Council for the Association of Serb Communes in Kosovo under the motto: “We’re all the same-whose turn is now”.

Among protesters there were also two suspects, for which EULEX has issued arrest warrants, former mayor of Zubin Potok, Slavisha Ristic and current one, Stevan Vulovic. /ibna/
