Citizens with Serbian document facing problems in Kosovo

Deputy Kosovo Interior Minister Milan Radojevic says that "the Kosovo border police, at some crossings, do not recognize Serbian documents." B92's correspondent said that identity cards issued by displaced police administrations are not recognized, as well as passports with the mark of the Coordination Directorate and Serbian driver's licenses held by citizens who have permanent residence in Kosovo. Radojevic told B92 that, late last and early this month, dozens of citizens who hold such documents filed complaints with the Kosovo Ministry of Internal Affairs because they were refused entry or exit from Kosovo to central Serbia, but also to the Republic of Macedonia. He added that he asked the police about the legal basis for such a decision, and that the director general of the police replied by saying this was "in line with the 2011 Brussels agreement on freedom of movement." @b92
