PRISTINA, Serbia – Head of Serbia’s Office for Kosovo Marko Djuric was booed on the streets of Pristina on Monday, as he was strong-armed by the Specialised Operational Unit of Kosovan police en route to a detention facility.
Djuric was transferred to the capital city after being arrested in Kosovska Mitrovica, where he was scheduled to make an appearance at a local Serb event.
Prior to that, Djuric and three other Serbian officials were refused entry into Kosovo at the Jarinje crossing in northern Kosovo.
Local Serbs clashed with the Specialised Operational Unit of Kosovan police during Djuric’s arrest.
Protesters against the official’s arrest erected a barricade on the road connecting Mitrovica and Pristina.
