Dusan Janjic, director of the Belgrade-based Forum for Ethnic Relations, told Radio Free Europe that after Oliver Ivanovic’s murder, Mitrovica North is perhaps the most dangerous places for Serbs. “It is an ideal environment for corruption and crime and of course politicians who want to get rich fast through crime,” he said. Janjic also said there is a great feeling of insecurity in Mitrovica North. “Many of them are really thinking about leaving. The problem is that politics there has relied on violence and crime lately. Serbia is faced with two choices now: either allow the mafia to take full control in that area or to settle the score with the evil that has engulfed all of northern Kosovo … We have credible information that they [criminal groups] are trying to bring the information community under control too … These are networks that at times have the backing of the government and sometimes they even force the government into supporting them,” Janjic said.
