EULEX steps up presence in the north

20 April 2012

EULEX has increased its presence in northern Kosovo as a result of increased tensions in recent weeks.

EULEX police have stepped up mobile patrols in villages around Mitrovica and also in northern Mitrovica, especially in the three towers area.

EULEX continues to work very closely with its colleagues in KFOR and KP. KFOR has also recently increased its own patrols and can be called on to assist EULEX when circumstances dictate. It is important that all communities remain calm at this time and adhere to the rule of law.

The aim of the increased presence is to provide greater community reassurance and to enhance public safety.
