President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, lit a candle in the Belgrade St. Sava church for the leader of the Civic Initiative 'Freedom, Democracy, Justice' Oliver Ivanovic, who was killed four years ago in front of his party's headquarters in northern Kosovo town of Mitrovica.

Along with Vucic, the late Kosovo Serb’s partner Milena Popovic, Prime Minister of Serbia Ana Brnabic and the head of the Government Office for Kosovo Petar Petkovic lit candles in memory of Ivanovic.

Prior to that, the priests served a memorial service for the murdered politician.

A statement issued by the presidency said Ivanovic was „a prominent Serb politician” from Kosovo.

Ivanovic was killed on this day four years ago and it has not yet been determined who ordered and committed the crime.

He was killed on January 16, 2018 with six shots in the back, in front of his party’s premises in the town of Mitrovica, northern Kosovo.
