Quashing Freedom in Order to Save It?

Reporters Without Frontiers criticise Serbian government for misusing its powers given by the state of emergency. Couple of Serbian newspapers and radio-stations were put out of business for reporting about state of emergency without using government sources.

Of course, anyone who thinks that some elements of Serbian government won't use opportunity to silence unpleasant critics is incredibly naďve. Živković (Zivkovic) and his Democratic Party has already used anti-mafia investigation to make arrests among people close to its most dangerous rival, former Yugoslav President Vojislav Koštunica (Vojislav Kostunica) and his party DSS.
