SERBIA, SERBIA, 30/01/2001, 13:50

The Vienna based South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) stongly condemns the threats made by leader of the "Nikola Pasic" Radical Party of the Left Sinisa Vucinic to Radio Television Serbia and its journalist, Aleksandar Crkvenjakov.

Vucinic sent an extremely rude threat to the state television channel and its journalist in protest at its reporting of his party's demonstrations against Carla del Ponte on 24 January 2001.

He advised Crkvenjakov to watch out for "ice patches", and warned RTS employees - whose colleagues were physically attacked at the demonstration - that "similar things would befall them every time they failed to display professionalism" according to his criteria.   

SEEMO is asking for an urgent police investigation in conection with this case.
