Editor: Talk outside office so Deputy Mayor doesn’t know what you will ask him Izvor: N1

Dragoljub Draza Petrovic, the editor-in-chief of the Belgrade independent Danas daily, told N1 morning programme that the Monday’s statement by the Deputy Mayor Goran Vesic who claimed he had an insight into the e-mail correspondence between N1 editors and reporters, was “absolutely shocking.”

That, according to him, clearly showed that the regime “does not let the media go of its hands.”

Petrovic added that “no politician in the world ever said so bluntly they had an internal correspondence of any media.

You will now have to meet outside, under the tree so that Vesic cannot hear what you plan to ask him

 “When an editor suggests to a reporter what to ask,” Petrovic says, “that’s a normal communication for everyone who deals with media.”

He added that “you either have someone who is sending e-mails to Vesic, or he is hacking. He is multi-talented, maybe he has some hacking skills. That’s the intimidation of normal media. You will now have to meet outside, under the tree so that Vesic cannot hear what you plan to ask him,” Petrovic said.

Former Commissioner for Information of Public Importance, Rodoljub Sabic told the Beta news agency that if Vesic were really in possession of N1 internal correspondence, that would be a crime punishable by two to three years in jail according to the Penal Code article 142.

 “It’s obvious that this small number of ‘normal media’ that are trying to do their job professionally is a stone in the regime’s shoe,” Petrovic said.
