ISTOK – Kosovo’s Minister for Communities and Return Dalibor Jevtic said on Tuesday that a Serb home in Osojane, Istok municipality, has been broken into and robbed.


The house belongs to the Repanovic family, and it was robbed while they were away for the Christmas holidays, Jevtic told Tanjug.

Jevtic said that the house has been rummaged and that the police are investigating the scene.

The home of the village priest was also broken into and robbed in mid-December.

Jevtic vehemently condemned the perpetrators of the latest incident in the returnee village, urging the police to find those responsible.

“I appeal to the Kosovo police to grant the requests of the residents and step up police presence in the village, hire Serbs on the force and boost the level of security in Osojane,” Jevtic said.

Around 500 Serb returnees live in Osojane.
