The home of Dragana Peco, award winning KRIK’s investigative reporter, has been broken into, with her belongings turned over, but no valuables reported missing.
The apartment was broken into on Friday, while Dragana was out of the city and her fiance found the flat with a broken lock when he returned from work. The police took fingerprints from the scene.
KRIK will insist on the police conducting a thorough investigation.
“We will insist that the case is seriously investigated, that, for example, all the cameras nearby are checked, because the only thing we know for sure is that the burglary happened today,” said Stevan Dojcinovic, Chief editor of KRIK.
“We haven’t noticed that any valuables are missing, such as mobile phones and things like that,” he added.
“The apartment was turned upside down, everything in it and in the drawers were taken out and thrown around, while the lock is broken, but there was no theft – and that is a bit confusing,” he continued.
He stated that at this point it is not yet possible to say whether the burglary was connected with Peco’s work.
“Cases involving journalists must be treated with higher seriousness exactly because they might be related to their work,” he said.
“We work on stories about crime and corruption; the fact is that Peco is investigative reporter and she works on serious things. That is why the case should be thoroughly investigated,” Dojcinovic noted.
