ANEM press release

Journalists summoned for police interrogation

BLEGRADE, September 16 -- The Association of Independent Electronic Media
in Yugoslavia (ANEM) protests strongly at the police interrogation of
journalists from "Novosti". Journalists Radmila Ognjenovic and Sonja
Curic, editor Vukota Corovic and Novosti director Pera Simic were
interrogated for several hours at the metropolitan police headquarters
over an article entitle "Rise on the Black Market" on the rise of the
street exchange rate for the Deutschmark. 

This is clearly a continuation of the practice of accusing journalists who
report on fluctuations in the value of the Deutschmark on Belgrade streets
of disturbing the public and even of provoking sudden rises in the black
market rate. 

ANEM reminds that public that the late Slavko Curuvija and journalists
from his "Dnevni Telegraf" were also summoned for police interrogation
over article on inflation and the rise of the black market rate for the
mark. ANEM trusts that the summons for interrogation at the metropolitan
police headquarters will remain the only similarity between these two
