Serbia: 3 assassination suspects talking

Three suspects in Wednesday’s assassination of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic have asked for protected witness status and are making statements to a special prosecutor in Belgrade, authorities said Thursday evening. The three are among eight arrested members of a 200-strong criminal gang known as the Zemun Clan. Their statements so far have confirmed the gang’s involvement in a variety of crimes, officials said. They did not specifically say the prime minister’s slaying was among them but declared instead, “The statements made so far confirm the participation of this criminal clan in the criminal acts mentioned.” The Serbian government report earlier referred to Djindjic’s assassination as a criminal act. More pointedly it went on to say: “In cooperation with police in the neighboring countries and the intelligence services and criminal police departments in several European states, information has been obtained confirming the implicatation of this criminal clan in organizing and carrying out the assassination of the Serbian prime minister.” Full Story
