Red Star Belgrade have been ordered to play three home games behind closed doors and fined 500,000 dinars for a riot in which a policeman was seriously injured.
Fans attacked the policeman with burning flares and seats in a league match against Hajduk Kula earlier this month. Several supporters were arrested and one charged with manslaughter.
Three Red Star officials were arrested last week and charged with causing a state of general danger face up to a month in detention while the investigation is completed. Red Star had asked for their quick release but the authorities instead handed the club’s general secretary Zoran Damjanovic and two of his aides a 30-day detention until the investigation is completed.
Partizan lead the Serbian first division by four points from Red Star with one match to go before the winter break.
