Holding of the RTS crew at Jarinje administrative crossing is another in a series of indicators of the problems which Serbs in Kosovo are faced with, said Aleksandar Spiric, President of Mitrovica Interim Municipal Council, reported Zvecan based TV Most.
On Thursday, Spiric told Radio Belgrade 1, inter alia, that “persistence always wins” and that RTS has now witnessed that the everyday life of the local people is full of difficulties and problems.
”Administrative crossing is one of those things which have been directly affecting the citizens for almost two months now, bearing in mind that even the movement to under-age children without birth certificates and IDs was at some point prevented,” Spiric said.
“What to say about all that has happened yesterday at Jarinje administrative crossing? RTS complied with all of the procedures, in line with the laws and regulations. However, this was about Pristina’s demonstration of power,” he said.
Speaking about the October 6 elections, Spiric said that the decision to ban the use of Serbian ID cards during the voting has already caused problems.
”With no participation of Serbs and without the method of voting that was used thus far, with Serbian documents, the elections scheduled for October 6 will not be legitimate. We believe that the international community will pressure Pristina and, above all, the Central Election Commission to ensure that what is allowed by law is respected also in this election process,” Spiric said.
