«They put me in a transporter (vehicle), struck me, attempted to intimidate me, pushed a rifle against my stomach, one of them took out a knife, they took selfies,» Head of Serbia's Office for Kosovo Marko Djuric said in Belgrade on Tuesday. This was his first public appearance after he had been arrested and subsequently released by the Specialised Operational Unit of Kosovan police. «On the way... Еще to Pristina (from Kosovska Mitrovica) they chanted 'Allahu Akbar',» he said. «They were leading me like a dog, dragging me with my tie on the ground to humiliate me, thinking that they can humiliate Serbia and the Serbian people,» Djuric said, both his hands heavily-bandaged. Djuric was transferred to the capital city after being arrested in Kosovska Mitrovica, where he was scheduled to make an appearance at a local Serb event. Prior to that, Djuric and three other Serbian officials were refused entry into Kosovo at the Jarinje crossing in northern Kosovo. Scores of Serbian protesters clashed with the Specialised Operational Unit of Kosovan police during Djuric's arrest. Protesters against the official's arrest erected a barricade on the road connecting Mitrovica and Pristina.
