Serbian Broadcasting Corporation journalist Svetlana Vukmirovic was denied entry in Kosovo again and stopped from crossing the Merdare administrative crossing on Dec. 27, the broadcaster has reported.

Vukmirovic said that members of Kosovo police were unpleasant when making it clear to her that she could not cross the administrative line. She was given no explanation why she was not allowed to enter Kosovo. She was previously sent back from the Merdare administrative crossing on Dec. 26.

The Association of Journalists of Serbia condemned the decision to ban her from entering Kosovo and asked that she and her TV crew be allowed to enter.

The Association said that Vukmirovic was barred from entering Kosovo several times, the last of which was last year. The explanation, through liasion officer Dejan Pavicevic, was that she had not announced her visit 72 hours in advance.

Vukmirovic and her TV crew visit Kosovo each month to prepare for her show on the lives of local Serbia called, The Right to Tomorrow. The Association also condemned an attack on a Klan Kosovo television crew in Zubin Potok on Dec. 26 and called on both KFOR and EULEX police to investigate the case, saying that it was imperative that media workers in Kosovo be provided with a safe environment to work in.
