The European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX) was in no way prevented from attending or observing the operations the Kosovo police carried out during the clashes with a group of armed Serbs in the village of Banjska on Sept. 24, said a statement on Sept. 29.

According to website KoSSev, this was EULEX's response to statements by the head of the Office for Kosovo and Metohija, Petar Petkovic, who reiterated on Sept. 28 what President Aleksandar Vucic had said the evening before, that EULEX had been "denied participation in an investigation into Banjska, so that Pristina could hide the evidence of the brutal murder of two Serbs."

EULEX said that their mobile patrols, police units, reserve police units, and other staff had been in close contact with the Kosovo police, and that they had arrived near the Banjska Monastery in North Kosovo.

They recalled that the mission did not have the executive mandate to conduct investigations.
