This country should not allow itself to pretending to be silly after Oliver Ivanovic and to the threats made by Trajkovic, said lawyer Božo Prelević at a press conference called by Trajković. While I am going through the “golgotha”, the humanisation of the “mafia man” as the protector of the Serbs is taking place, said a Serbian politician from Kosovo.
She addressed the public urgently, visibly worried, as she testified, about the pressures from some state structures to which she claims she and her family are subjected. This is reflected, as she explained today, in threats, blackmail through legal proceedings as defendants against the Vice-President of the Serbian List, Milan Radoicic, and one of the leaders of the BIA, Bojan Dimic, and restrictions on freedom of movement. She sees the reason for this in the fact that she did not refrain from testifying in the Oliver Ivanović murder trial, which she confirmed in a subsequent interview with KoSSev.
She explained that even before she testified in the Pristina court and immediately after her first public statements about the murder of Oliver Ivanovic, the pro-government media launched a “terrible campaign”, and she has been in a series of inconveniences since then.
“In fact, I had no other intention than to keep the topic alive. Besides, I had a lot of help from journalists. But from then on, my “golgotha”, and my persecution began,” Trajković said.
She recalled the accusations against the former Director of the Kosovo Office, Marko Đurić, and the writing of the ALO newspaper immediately after the alleged involvement of Milan Radoicic and others in the murder of Oliver Ivanović.
She also recalled that Vučić himself had publicly presented the details of her testimony before the Special Prosecutor in Pristina in an address to the public.
She accused the Kosovo judicial authorities of presenting testimony from the investigation as an example, citing the very fact that her testimony from the investigation ended up on the Serbian President’s desk.
Trajković stressed that she still “holds strongly to the institutions”, which is why she testified about her knowledge of the murder of Oliver Ivanović before the authorities in Pristina as well as in Belgrade.
“But unfortunately, Belgrade did not go further with the investigation than the pre-investigations and in fact tried to keep all of this somehow in the pre-investigation process”, Trajkovic added.
From a shift, to retirement, to a court appearance
Trajković testified that there are four trials pending before the Serbian judicial authorities against, as she claims, the head of the BIA department Bojan Dimic (2) and the vice-president.
Trajković also identified as a particular target the fact that summonses for her last hearings were delivered to her by pasting papers on the doors of the apartments where her son and daughter live.
“I perceive this as a threat and I feel helpless because we obviously have a link between the state and crime,” Trajković stressed.
According to one of the judgments in these cases, Trajković claims that she is obliged to pay 600,000 dinars in damages to the aforementioned head of the BIA, an amount which she says he would pay by taking a third of her income.
She claims that she only became aware of this judgment through the bailiff’s actions and that she is currently trying to reinstate this legal proceeding.
She also recalled an example of direct threats she received at the end of August by telephone with a printed identification number, which she forwarded to the Ministry of the Interior and the prosecutor’s office with the message “You will see what will happen to you”, said a man with an aggressive voice. As she described it, with a direct link to what she had said the day before about Milan Radoicic.
As she informed the public today, after a month and a half, she was allegedly contacted by the commander of the former on 29. November, informing her that the identification of three persons was in progress, without major details, except that the information about that conversation would be forwarded to the prosecution, from where, as she claims, she received no further information.
In fact, immediately after the incident, the person in charge of the base stations disclosed to her the name of the person she had called, the details of the person and that the person was a former member of the Đakovica police who now lives in Trstenik.
The police protection she had until recently enjoyed from the Serbian police authorities has been withdrawn, Trajković testified today.
“I had police protection for a while and this is absurd – to get state protection after a press conference by President Vucic, but to be officially told that it is as far as Merdare from Albanian extremists and terrorists, in the middle of Belgrade,” she said.
Prelević: I am worried about the resemblance to Oliver Ivanović
Also speaking at the Rada Trajković press conference was lawyer Božo Prelević, who pointed out that Rada Trajković is a friend of his from the time when he worked as a judge in Kosovo.
“What particularly concerns me is the many similarities with Oliver Ivanovic. First, she was threatened – in her deeply held belief – in connection with her testimony at the trial of Oliver Ivanovic’s killers. It is also interesting that the police informally tell her that she is being threatened by an Albanian mafia, but when asked who and which Albanian mafia, they are unable to answer. So, if you know who is threatening her, it would be wise to let her know. If you know who is threatening, then you know exactly what they are threatening,” Prelević said.
He considered it a “particular problem” that not only she is at risk, but also her children are at risk, as well as a certain person Trajkovic goes to in Kosovo.
“These are all Serbian places and it is clear where the threats are coming from. “The problem arises at the moment when,” Prelević adds, the President and the Prime Minister describe the persons who are on the indictment for the murder of Oliver Ivanović as persons worthy of the Serbian community.
“Rada believes that these threats are not random and that it is clear who can benefit from these threats in the proceedings against Oliver Ivanovic.”/KoSSev
