Around 300 Serbs protested Tuesday in front of the police station in northern Kosovska Mitrovica over the rotation of police commanders in northern Kosovo.

Around 300 Serbs protested Tuesday in front of the police station in northern Kosovska Mitrovica over the rotation of police commanders in northern Kosovo.

Traffic was blocked on the road from Zvecan to Kosovska Mitrovica during the one-hour protest, which finished without incidents.

KFOR, EULEX and Kosovo police were at the scene.

Kosovska Mitrovica Mayor Krstimir Pantic said local officials had informed EULEX that the citizens of Mitrovica would not accept unilateral moves from Pristina and that consent from local authorities in northern Kosovo was needed to go ahead with the rotation.

Pantic assessed the rotation was another of Pristina's attempts to destabilize northern Kosovo.

"All responsibility now lies with EULEX. We have been given assurances that EULEX will do its best to keep the situation under control and get the rotation order retracted," Pantic said.

The Kosovo Police Service suspended police commanders in northern Kosovo last month, after they refused to comply with the rotation order.

In the rotation, northern Kosovska Mitrovica police commander Bratislav Kragovic was to be transferred to Jarinje, Nenad Djuric from Zvecan to Leposavic, Dragan Stefanovic from Leposavic to northern Kosovska Mitrovica, and Drazo Bozovic from Zubin Potok to the regional police headquarters in northern Kosovska Mitrovica.
