Serbia-Montenegro / Kosovo - 2006 Annual report

Press freedom declined in 2005, with unjustified prosecutions against the media, one journalist beaten up, four others threatened with death and a repressive new law undermining the independence of TV stations. Milan Milinkovic, former editor of the weekly Podrinski Telegraf, was given a year-long suspended prison sentence for libel.

Concerning Kosovo, 2005 was marred by the killing of journalist Bardehul Ajeti, who had reported on organised crime in the newspaper Bota Sot. Journalists are still strictly censoring themselves because of a general failure to punish criminals that exposes them to such reprisals. Relations are still tense between Serbs and Albanians in the province, which has been run by the United Nations since 1999 and where talks on its future status are due to start soon.
