Spokesman of Kosovo Police, Daut Hoxha said that the arrest has taken place on the road linking Gjilan to Bujanoc.

“Kosovo Police have not received any explanation by the Serb authorities for the arrest of the regional Police Commissioner. EULEX authorities have asked for an official explanation on the reasons of the arrest”, Hoxha declared.

According to Hoxha, “at the moment of the arrest, Thaci was not on duty and was travelling with a friend of his along with a friend of his to Western countries and going through Serbia”.
