Milan Radoicic's lawyer, Goran Petronijevic, has denied claims reported in the media and alleged reports from international organizations that there were negotiations or an agreement that led to his client's withdrawal, along with his comrades, after an incident in the village of Banjska. Petronijevic insists that they did not negotiate with anyone, including KFOR.

"Considering the lies that have appeared in some media and alleged reports from international organizations claiming that there were negotiations or an agreement based on which my client Milan Radoicic and his comrades withdrew after the incident in the village of Banjska, we dismiss these lies as pure fabrications and I assert that my client and his comrades did not negotiate with anyone, including KFOR," states Petronijevic in the announcement.

He also refuted, on behalf of Milan Radoicic, repeated falsehoods claiming that any of these men had entered the Banjska Monastery.

"We emphasize that this is a vile lie aimed at tarnishing them. The only armed individuals who entered the Banjska Monastery later that day were members of Kurti's phalanxes. A group of Serbian pilgrims was present throughout the conflict in the monastery, who can confirm this," Petronijevic mentioned.

At the end of the statement, Petronijevic questioned the purpose of these falsehoods.

"What is the goal of these lies? Who do they serve? Is it the intention to divide the Serbs and sow discord among them? I am confident that this will not happen, and therefore, we demand that KFOR come forward and publicly disclose when, where, with whom, and what was negotiated? And, of course, to present clear and unequivocal evidence for their claims," concluded Petronijevic.
