The Kosovo Serb politician, Oliver Ivanovic was assassinated on this day two years and five months ago. The Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic commented today on the investigation.

While answering questions of allegations that it is possible that suspects involved in the murder of Oliver Ivanovic are hiding in Serbia under international arrest warrants, the Serbian Prime Minister, Ana Brnabic replied:

„We have heard accusations against Serbia a hundred times so far, and nothing ever came out of it. They accused a lot of people, but nothing came out of it.“

According to Brnabic, Serbia has already shared with everyone „all information it has about the murder of Oliver Ivanovic.“

„It is in our interest to find Oliver Ivanovic’s murderer. Pristina has never done that. We did not receive any information we asked from them, nor am I aware if they are really conducting an investigation there,“ she added.

„Let’s see what they will do there,“ Brnabic said ahead of the continuation of the trial in Pristina against those accused of involvement in Ivanovic’s murder, which was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

„If they wanted to find out who killed Oliver Ivanovic, they would have found out by now,“ the Prime Minister of Serbia claimed, while also adding that Pristina is not „the only culprit.“

„EULEX and UNMIK are also there, as are all those who I don’t know what they have done so far to find Oliver Ivanovic’s killer. There is nothing all of a sudden – the cameras were not working, it was cloudy, we have no clues and everything is used solely for political confrontation against Serbia and for political processes in Serbia itself.“

She said that Serbia „defended itself from that,“ emphasizing once again that finding out who killed the SDP leader is in Belgrade’s interest.

Exactly two years and five months ago, the leader of the GI SDP, Oliver Ivanovic was shot dead with several shots in the back while entering his party premises in North Mitrovica.

On December 2nd, almost two years later, the Kosovo Special Prosecutor’s Office filed the first indictment, while the first preparatory hearing was held on February 11th.

The second preparatory hearing was supposed to take place on March 16th; however, it was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
