On Friday April 2, at 09.00 CET, court officials together with uniformed and
plain clothes policemen delivered to Radio B92's Director - Sasa Mirkovic -
an order from the court announcing his dismissal as the station's Director.
The decision was taken by the government-controlled Council of Youth, the
founder of B92. The Council replaced Mr. Mirkovic with Mr. Aleksander
Nikacevic. The police then sealed off the studio and offices of B92, banning
the station from broadcasting. Shortly after, the stations new director -
Mr. Nikacevic - issued an order in the presence of inspectors to all B92
staff to show up for work on Monday April, 5.
