An explosive device was thrown on around 10:45 p.m. on Thursday at the electricity distribution facility in Kosovska Mitrovica, two days after the signing of the energy agreement between Belgrade and Priština in Brussels.

Besim Hoti, Regional Director of the Kosovo* Police for Kosovska Mitrovica, confirmed the case for Kosovo Online, saying that apart from the material damage, there were no casualties.

According to him, the crime scene investigation is still ongoing and the Office of the Prosecutor has been notified, which will initiate proceedings on several criminal acts.

He said that the original assumption was that there had been a fire due to the high voltage, but after the investigation, it turned out that an explosive device was involved.

“There was a fire in the transformer, originally believed to be caused as a consequence of the high voltage, but after the investigation it turned out that there had been an attack, because some cars nearby were damaged,” said Hoti.

On Tuesday in Brussels, Belgrade and Priština signed a Roadmap for the implementation of the energy agreements achieved in 2013 and 2015, where one of the provisions obliges the Energy Regulation Office to issue a licence to distribute to “Elektrosever”.

The Energy Regulation Office is due to reconsider issuing a licence to “Elektrosever” today.
