SRSG Tanin condemns shooting incidents in Pejë/Peć and Istog/Istok
PRISTINA – The Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of UNMIK, Zahir Tanin, today condemned the shooting incident in village of Gorazhdec/Goraždevac in Pejë/Peć municipality early yesterday.
“I strongly condemn this serious attack, which damaged property and a monument. Such incidents are felt by the entire Kosovo Serb community and risk undermining confidence in overall security and community relations,” said Tanin. “I urge the authorities to swiftly investigate these incidents and bring the perpetrators to justice.”
Tanin also expressed concern over a second incident yesterday evening in which shots were fired at a shop in Istog/Istok while two Kosovo Serbs were inside.
