Abbot of the Visoki Decani Monastery in Kosovo and Metohija Archimandrite Sava Janjic has informed media representatives that an unidentified person is threatening to destroy the monastery in the next several days, reports Kosovsky Dnevnik.
According to Archimandrite Sava, the Kosovo police have reported that an unidentified man presenting himself as the Kosovo Liberation Army commander called a local television station and said that an attack on the monastery was being prepared within two days.
On April 26 security measures near the monastery were increased. However, there have been no attacks yet.
These threats have been condemned by the Office for Issues of Kosovo and Metohija at the Serbian Government. A number of public organizations in Serbia have expressed their concern as well.
The leader of the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo Ramus Haradinaj has also condemned the provocations.
Not long before the threats, insulting graffiti appeared on the monastery's gates.
