On suspicion that they did not properly protect the crime scene two members of the Kosovo police station in the northern part of Kosovska Mitrovica have been detained, said the prosecutor conducting investigation into the murder of Oliver Ivanovic, Njazi Redza.

Redza told Pristina portal Kallxo that the police officers, whose names were not published, were detained for 48 hours because they did not properly protect the crime scene immediately after the murder of Oliver Ivanovic, reports RTS.

Portal Gazeta Express previously published a statement from the Kosovo police stating that two locations in the northern part of the city were searched by the order of the Basic Court in Mitrovica and that a TT gun and two bullets with two clips containing bullets 7.62 mm caliber were found.

Oliver Ivanovic, leader of the SDP Citizens Initiative, was killed on January 16 in front of the party’s headquarters in North Mitrovica.

The autopsy report showed that Oliver Ivanovic was killed with six bullets from a gun “Zastava M70A”, known as the “long nine”.
