Instead they made a special, status-neutral statement, Brnabic said.

Her reaction came after this alleged text of the oath appeared on social networks: "I solemnly swear that during the performance of my duties as a judge of the Republic of Kosovo, I will remain faithful to the Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo and will perform the function of the judge honorably, responsibly and impartially respecting the rules of professional ethics."

"Here's the real info," Brnabic wrote on Twitter on Friday. "Our judges did not take any oath of office, instead they made a special, status-neutral statement. Truth matters."

The N1 broadcaster reported this on its website, adding that, "on October 20 in the office of Kosovo President Hashim Thaci, 40 judges and 13 prosecutors from northern Kosovo took the oath of office."

This act integrates Serb judges and prosecutors into the Kosovo judicial system - this is considered as the last step towards the full implementation of the Brussels agreement on justice, which was reached on February 10, 2015, the article said.
