The Don’t Let Belgrade D(r)own initiative released an open letter to MPs in the European Union warning that “human rights and liberties do not exist in Serbia” and calling them not to take part in the talks on election conditions in Serbia as long as there are attacks and pressure on the media and activists.

The initiative said that the Serbian authorities are using “threats, pressure and violence against rivals, almost complete control and abuse of the media, party control of the judiciary, blackmail and economic pressure against a large number of people”.

“We are certain that in similar circumstances in your countries, you would refuse to lend legitimacy to false processes by the authoritarian government and would refuse to take part in false elections which do not provide conditions to express the free will of the citizens,” the letter said.

It recalled attacks on N1 TV, Danas daily as well as assaults on social activists by state institutions and officials adding that the state TV (RTS) recently joined the pressure on the independent media.
