Car belonging to Kosovo's Serb-born mayor set ablaze



Kosovo's Serb-born Mayor Gorski Guric's car was set on fire early Sunday by unidentified individuals, police said.

Kosovo police said a plastic bottle and a piece of cloth smelling of gasoline were found next to the vehicle’s engine.

Police launched an investigation and the relevant prosecutor was informed.

In 2023, more than 10 vehicles belonging to Kosovo Serb employees of Kosovo institutions that had Republic of Kosovo (RKS) license plates were set ablaze by an unidentified person or persons while parked.

Kosovo Serbs launched a petition Wednesday to dismiss four Albanian mayors in northern municipalities of Kosovo.

Thousands of local Serbs gathered at the sports hall in North Mitrovica to sign a petition to dismiss Mayor Erden Atiq.

Sanja Krtinic, one of the initiators of the petition, told reporters that Atiq was illegally elected and did not represent the majority.

Atiq was elected along with three other mayors in four Serb municipalities after Serbs boycotted elections in 2023.

A total of 3,640 signatures are required to initiate her dismissal.

The signing of a petition also started Wednesday for the Leposavic municipality.

No information was given about Zvecan and Zubin Potok municipalities.
