Gazeta Express has learned from its sources within the Kosovo Intelligence Agency (KIA) and Kosovo Police that they know who killed Kosovo Serb politician, Oliver ivanovic on 16 January 2018 in Mitrovica North.
Killing of the Kosovo Serb leader, Oliver Ivanovic, who was gunned down in front of his SDP Party headquarters in Mitrovica North, is likely to be solved soon. “The KIA and Kosovo Police, possess information on who pulled the trigger and the motives behind this this killing,” a reliable source told Gazeta Express. “Maybe they don’t have all the information, to order the arrest of the alleged perpetrators, but there is a lead,” a source told Express noting however that the KIA and Police are careful not to damage the investigation. “It is very likely that the security institutions have already informed political leaders, in both Kosovo and Serbia related to their findings,” the source said.
Oliver Ivanovic was killed on 16 January in front of his party’s headquarters. Only days before he was gunned down with six bullets by unknown perpetrators, Ivanovic told media in Belgrade the he was not feeling safe. Strained relations of Ivanovic with the Government in Belgrade, and Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic, were tense. The Government during general and local elections in Kosovo held in 2017 have openly supported the Srpska List, hampering other political parties gathering Serbs in Kosovo. Media in Serbia have reported that only days before Ivanovic’s killing he sent an SMS to President Vucic, but he received no answer on his concerns. Media continue speculations on alleged perpetrators of Ivanovic’s killing.
