Stefan Cvetkovic, a journalist from Serbia’s northern town of Bela Crkva, said on Thursday the police gave him protection after, as he said, the unknown perpetrators shot at his car last night, the Beta news agency reported.

He added that after he reported the incident, the police “took me to the station to give a statement as a citizen.”

The Higher Prosecutor’s office (VJT) in Pancevo told the Beta news agency that the prosecution process has started.

“Due to the media reports about Cvetkovic’s car being shot at, the VJT started a preliminary procedure.”
