Arrest warrant against Radojicic “still in force”

Kosovo prosecutor, Rasim Maloku, told Radio Free Europe that the Kosovo Police should arrest Milan Radojicic, deputy leader of the Serbian List, if they determine he is in the territory of Kosovo, noting that there is an active arrest warrant against him.

Neither the Government of Kosovo nor the police responded to RFE’s questions on whether they possess information that Radojicic is in Kosovo after he posted a video clip saying he was back.

Ehat Miftaraj from the Kosovo Law Institute said he believed Radojicic’s video was addressed to Kosovo institutions to let them know he still has connections that enable him to enter the territory of Kosovo. “On the other hand, he is also among the individuals who are on the U.S. blacklist, linked to criminal activities and human rights violations. So, he is trying to say that the Kosovo institutions have not closed all the alternative roads in the north, this is a message for the Kosovo Police as well”, Miftaraj said.

Ognjen Gogic, the political commentator from Mitrovica North, meanwhile believes that Radojicic’s message was directed at Belgrade authorities and the Serbian List, adding that “there are certain indications that they want to get rid of him, namely that he ceases being a political factor.” Gogic said he believed Radojicic returned to Serbia following the recording of the video clip in Kosovo.

RFE notes that Radojicic’s video message comes at a time when the authorities from Serbia are reacting strongly to the decision of the Kosovo Government to establish reciprocity with Serbia on personal documents and license plates.
