Businesses in the Serb-run north of Kosovo closed on Monday in protest against the 100-per-cent tariff imposed on imports from Serbia.

Shops, bakeries, gas stations, hairdressers, pharmacies, fast food shops and all other local businesses closed on Monday in the northern Serb-led municipalities of Kosovo, protesting against the 100-per-cent tariff that the government has imposed on imports from Serbia.

Many local businesses at first ignored the new tax, arranging their supplies from Serbian producers through alternative channels – until end of May, when police arrested more than 20 local Serbian policemen and accused them of assisting smuggling and organised crime, Kossev portal wrote on Monday.
