  1. "Here in the states a police officer is allowed to jail you up to 24 hours without charges. "
    (KOSO, 9 January 2013 05:27)

    Yes, but in real states, a police officer must have a good reason to jail a person. 'Looking suspicious' is surely not a valid one.

  2. "I can assure you that is not the same as Slobos era, when someone wore a black pants and red shirt or had a cd in its car with Albanian songs. Imagen for what Albanians were jailed, beaten and killed!? "
    (Ardi Asllani, 8 January 2013 20:12)

    Correct! It's totally different nowadays! It's Thaci time! You only get arrested for the crime of 'looking suspicious', for wearing T-Shirts of any color but with Cyrillic letters on it, or if you have a flag in your car with Serbian coat of arms. And you only got jailed, maybe beaten, but you will be released. Great improvements, I think...

  3. They are members of the so-called Serbian civil defense who operate ilegally north of Ibar river, financed by smugglers or what B92 like to refer as "entrepreneurs". They are suspected behind countless attacks against local Serbs, journalists, officers, politicans and etc north of Ibar river who show any ties with Prishtina, let alone what Albanians has to endure, hence why I call them for thugs.

    Stop lying, there is no such thing as a "civilian defence". Just another albanian lie and pityful attempt to blame innocent youngsters. If there is how come that they were not arrested before but you waited to arrest them on the biggest christian holiday, how do you explain that?

    These youngsters didnt wear ANY badges or emblems whatsoever, why cant you just admit that they were arrested simply because of their nationality, or why else do u think they were released after only 48 hrs?If they had any proof at all they would hardly release them so fast.

    If they are everything you say why release them? These are alb accusations! Where is the proof? You say there is no proof of albanian crimes against serbs so I say where is the proof against these people?

    Not sure if (and how) it differs to other countries, but in Serbia 25 would be considered young, 35 middle aged and above 45 would generally be considered old. Hopefully this answers your question.

  9. You can't have secret serb police in a another country- I'm sorry, I agree with KSP here, they should be arrested! serbs are still in denial over what they did in Kosovo and Bosnia, and the international community is loosing patience with serbia.

  10. Give them 20 years jail time .They were planing terrorist attack in Kosova.Mitrovica group just like Gjilani group in Beligrad.

    This one is priceless. It's a keeper.
    Twenty years for wearing something is a bit of an overkill. Even an Albanian can see that and yet here is one Albanian who is willing to look insane just so he can spew more cr@p on this site.

  11. 30-day detention would be more suitable, make an example of these thugs.
    (Pejoni, 8 January 2013 17:28)

    That's sadistic and unusual punishment.

  12. What is considered "Young" in Serbia, is 25 young? Also what is the reason in calling them Young what is the reporter trying to say; are they teenagers? I dont get your purpose. Ive seen the news those guys look no younger than 35, they look old and capable of committing murder anytime if asked by their superior, they were parallel security members and they were detained simple as that in Kosova because their presence is against our Constitution ... thnx B92

  14. If it was such a minor offence, why detain them overnight?
    (Andy UK, 8 January 2013 17:53)

    To see if KPS could thumbtack some extra charges against them - you know, like being hardened war criminals, or postal workers, or NGO volunteers, or all of the above since working for the Serbian government automatically makes you a war criminal in Albanian society.

  16. Pejoni proves that law is an alien concept amongst albanians. Savages. Did the Germans order Pristina to release the Serbs???

  19. The reports from Priština this afternoon do not specify the charges brought against the group."

    Could it be that the charges have not been fabricated yet? The albanians have run out of lies. These serbs were only arrested as a provocation, nothing less.

    Minor? It's Kosovo: In this dream state, you can deal with drugs, loot and kill without being bothered by police, but dare to 'look suspect', wear a T-Shirt with certain words on it, or carry a Serbian flag with you.

    You forget to mention that Serbs are ALWAYS innocent. In fact, they are God-given Saints and the world simply don't understand when they commit genocide, ethnic cleansing and the other stuff they have become famous of. So eeeeassyy...

    Pejoni

    Please explain why they are thugs? What are they guilty of? If you believe so much in Pristinas legal system why weren't they kept in jail? I don't know if you are really that ignorant but to everyone beside albanians trolls its pretty obvious that albanians are only out to provoke. Just like the "monument" in Presevo. You are trouble makers. You wan't to intimidate serbs in Kosovo to leave. When was the last time you heard serbs raid a mosque in Presevo, or arrest innocent albanians? Serbs have proven, even during the war, that we are superiour to your middle aged behaviour. If it wasn't for our churches in Kosovo I would nuke that hell hole and with everything in it.

  27. Goes to show, the arrests were simply intimidation. There were no actual reasons to apprehend these 9 men, asides from the fact that they are Serbs, and were with Vulin.
    (Kalifornija, 8 January 2013 16:36)

    # Comment link

  28. Maybe these 9 Serbs were with Mr. Vulin? Is that against the law in Albanian run Kosovo? What was the suspicion that the KPS had? What are they being charged with in Pristina? What are they paying fines for? Why are there no answers? Asides from being Serbs, I do not see any crime that was committed by these men.
