He told the AP agency that this includes "accusations of spying for the U.S. leveled also by some officials."

The agency said that the campaign against the office came after it "recently moved to open sensitive cases from the Balkan country's wartime past."

Vukcevic was quoted as saying that "his team and their families have received death threats and faced attacks in the nationalist media that have coincided with our work in about four cases."

The AP report noted that In late December, "two lawmakers from the ruling coalition filed espionage charges against the prosecutors for allegedly revealing sensitive information about their cases to U.S. embassy officials."

"We have stirred up a hornet's nest," Vukcevic said.
