TIRANA. She arrested two people Albanian police on suspicion that during a concert by Bosnian Serb musician and composer Goran Bregovič, they threw containers containing tear gas. The AP agency informed about it on Monday.

The incident took place during Sunday’s performance at a festival in the Albanian town of Korca, about 165 kilometers southeast of Tirana. A police statement said that the detained 21-year-old Redon Leka threw a container of tear gas during the concert.

Another man was arrested by the police after trying to prevent the detention of Lek, the AP writes. Despite the incident, Bregovič did not stop singing. However, the tear gas caused panic among some fans.

Bregovič’s presence in Korč provoked a debate in Albania, writes AP. Some condemn him for not openly condemning Serbian crimes against ethnic Albanians in neighboring Kosovo, while others say the artist should not be involved in politics.

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama condemned the criticism of Bregovič and called it a “medieval hysteria” against “one of the most exceptional musicians in the Balkans”. According to Rama, Bregovič never spoke out against the Albanians and never supported the Serbian regime during the war in Kosovo in 1998-99.

“It was a fascist hysteria, shameful for the European citizenship of Albania, for our history and tradition,” Rama wrote on the social network Facebook.

Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008 – ten years after the war with Serbian troops, the AP recalls. The war ended with a 78-day military campaign by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Most Western countries have recognized Kosovo; Serbia and its allies Russia and China have not yet done so. Persistent tensions over Kosovo remain a source of instability in the Balkans, the AP said.

Bregovič also visited Albania in 2006. He performed at a concert and received a symbolic key from the capital Tirana, whose mayor at the time was Edi Rama. His presence in the country at the time did not provoke resistance.

The Albanian wing of Kosovo’s ultra-nationalist movement Self-Determination has rejected claims by local media that it organized the tear gas incident. A few days ago, supporters of this movement protested against Bregovič’s participation in the festival in Korč, the AP concludes.
