Das Belgrader Regime nützt die Vorkriegslage, um einen
Schlag gegen die Opposition zu führen & die unabhängige
Radiostation B-92 endgültig zum Verstummen zu bringen. In
der Nacht auf heute [2:50 MEZ] wurde der Sender von der
Polizei geschlossen, Chefredakteur Veran Matic wurde

Drazen Pantic, founder and former director of OpenNet, Radio
B92's Internet department, recounts tonite's events as of 2:50
am, local time in Belgrade:

"Tonight at 2:50a.m. two technicians from the Federal
Ministry for Telecommunications accompanied by 10
policemen entered the premises of B-92 and ordered the
immediate closing of the radio. Police ordered all journalists
to step back from their computers and mobile phones. When
Veran Matic, editor in chief, entered the radio, police took
him into custody without any explanation. He has not
returned since."

"The official explanation is that Radio B92 has overpowered
its transmission."

Radio B92 in Belgrade has been the most important voice of
independent media in Serbia throughout the wars in the
former Yugoslavia, and also coordinates the Association of
Independent Electronic Media (ANEM), an association of 33
radio and18 television stations in Yugoslavia. Since its
founding in 1989 as Serbia#185#s first independent station,
B92 has developed its own Internet center (OpenNet); a book
and magazine publishing department; a cultural center, an
award-winning film and video department; and a CD label
which features the music of young Yugoslav artists.

Veran Matic founded Radio B92, Serbia's first independent
station, in May 1989. The station was subsequently banned
several times, but has managed to continue broadcasting
throughout the nine years of its existence. Radio B92
broadcasts a mix of new, information programs, call-in
shows, entertainment and music 24 hours a day. Its news
programs form the core of the ANEM Radio Network's
programming, which provides independent news to listeners
in upwards of 70 per cent of Yugoslavia. In addition to serving
as B92's editor-in-chief, Matic also chairs ANEM, and is
executive director of the International Committee for the
Protection of Independent Media in Yugoslavia, FREE 2000.

independent media in Serbia, including in Kosovo:
