Police officers in the north hand in their gear

Policija policjska stanica

Serb members of the Kosovo Police from the region north handed in their equipment this morning. As of this morning, there are no policemen left to patrol the streets in the north.

The now ex-policemen arrived both in small groups, but also individually, at the police station in North Mitrovica, where they handed in their police gear.

At the same time, Kosovo Serb judges, prosecutors, and support staff also tendered their resignations, as announced two days ago – the judge of the Appellate Court and member of the Kosovo Judicial Council from the Serbian community, Nikola Kabasic, confirmed.

“Today, the judges who did not send their resignations to the Judicial Council of Kosovo yesterday did so through official emails,” Kabasic said.

A large group of North Mitrovica police officers from the Serbian community submitted “resignation requests” this Sunday, as confirmed for KoSSev.

One of the policemen immediately announced that „as of tomorrow, there will be no more Serbian policemen in the north of Kosovo.“

In the meantime, the Kosovo police in Pristina announced that police officers from the Serbian community „have resigned“. They also said that they have the capacity to handle the situation.

The mass resignation of police officers arrived a day after the political and institutional representatives of Serbs from the north of Kosovo decided to leave all Kosovo institutions, i.e. shortly after yesterday’s gathering in downtown North Mitrovica, where the now former political and institutional representatives in Kosovo institutions from the north of Kosovo, as well as representatives of the health and education sectors in the North, addressed the gathered citizens.
