Zubin Potok: Suspended Police officer's private car torched

A BMW vehicle, privately owned by a suspended member of the Kosovo Police, M.V., from Zubin Potok, was burnt an hour and a half after midnight. The vehicle was parked in front of police officer's family house in his municipality.

An investigation is under way – the circumstances and motive of this criminal offense are being determined. The prosecutor was also informed, it was confirmed for KoSSev by the Northern region of the Kosovo Police.

M.V. is part of a group of 20 police officers from the North who were suspended at the end of 2016 due to, as the Police Inspectorate of Kosovo stated at the time, receiving bribes and abuse of office.
