The authorities in Pristina have announced that they would reveal the first results of the investigation of the murder of Oliver Ivanovic today.
The Kosovo prosecutor, Sucri Sulja, who is investigating Ivanovic’s murder, said on Friday that the results would include footage recorded by security cameras, details regarding the burned car as well as forensic evidence.
He announced that the witness’s statements would also be included in the report. So far, six witnesses have been questioned by the police.
The Serbian police did ask to take part in the investigation into Ivanovic’s murder, and the Serbian Prosecutor for Organized Crime has launched its own pre-trial procedure. The Serbian Interior Ministry has not officially received any materials or information from the Kosovo investigative authorities as yet.
Serbian Interior Minister, Nebojsa Stefanovic said yesterday that a Kosovo investigation appeared to be slowing down or not progressing quickly enough since a lot of misinformation had been circulating around.
The leader of the Freedom, Democracy and Justice initiative, Oliver Ivanovic, was killed on 16th January in front of the seat of his party in the northern part of Kosovska Mitrovica.
Ivanovic was shot six times, with the police finding a burned down Opel Astra, allegedly used by attackers, in the vicinity of the crime scene.
The Kosovo police are offering 10,000 EUR for information leading to the murder.
