SERBIA TO TAKE ACTION AGAINST HOOLIGANS

Serbia are desperate to end football hooliganism in their country. Platini threatened to expel Serbian clubs and the national team from all European competitions unless Belgrade stopped football hooligans and violence at stadiums.

The response was quick — a special police unit was formed that will suppress hooligan violence.

Police general Mladen Kuribak told the Belgrade daily Press that police had declared war on hooligans and are building a database of those involved in riots at sporting events. “As of May 5th, we have begun registering extreme fans. All those who have thus far answered for misdemeanors and crimes with an element of violence will be placed in that database,” Kuribak said.
