News April 13, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for justice for Slavko Curuvija on fifth anniversary of murder Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says Europe – Central Asia Help by sharing this information June 4, 2021 Find out more to go further Europe – Central Asia Five years after the murder of Slavko Curuvija, who was accused of “treason” by the pro-government press during the NATO bombing, the police investigation into his death seems to have come to a halt. Reporters Without Borders reminds the authorities of their pledge to solve this case. “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Reporters Without Borders reiterated its call for justice for slain newspaper editor Slavko Curuvija today, five years after his April 1999 murder in Belgrade. Curuvija’s killers are still at large although reportedly identified by an eye-witness. The police say that do not have enough proof to indict the suspects.”We hope that your government’s declared commitment to identify and publish those reponsible for this murder was more than just an electoral promise,” Reporters Without Borders said in a letter to interior minister Dragan Jocic. “Slavko Curuvija’s family and his colleagues in Serbia and elsewhere in the world call for no effort to be spared until justice is done.”The fifth anniversary has been the occasion of several comments by officials about the case. Former deputy interior minister Nenad Milic said an eye-witness had identified the killers, but his successor, Miroslav Milosevic, said the police had no “valid evidence” against the suspects. Police inspector general Vladimir Bozovic said a special team was working on the case.On 9 December 2003, a few days before legislative elections, the office of the special prosecutor and the organised crime bureau said an eye-witness had formally identified two persons suspected of the murder but their identity could not be revealed. Since then, the police have given no further information about the outcome of this identification.Under the state of emergency declared on 12 March 2003 after the assassination of Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic, deputy state prosecutor Milan Sarajlic was suspended and arrested along with other judicial officials thought to be linked with underworld figures. The interior ministry said Sarajlic confessed during his detention to working with the powerful Zemun gang and to actively obstructing the Curuvija murder probe. State prosecutor Sinisa Simic, who was in charge of the enquiry, was fired on 21 March 2003. Curuvija, who edited the newspapers Dnevni Telegraf and Evropljanin, was shot dead by two masked men on 11 April 1999 as he arrived in front of his Belgrade home with his wife. He had been constantly harassed for his articles criticising the regime of President Slobodan Milosevic. Djordje Martic, former editor of newspaper Ekspres Politika, said on 14 April 2001 that an article that appeared in his paper on 6 April 1999, a few days before the murder, accusing Curuvija of being a traitor and in favour of the NATO military offensive, was written on the orders of Milosevic’s wife, Mirjana Markovic.

The 125,000-euro daughter of Kodiac was backed in to 9-10 favouritism for the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden and travelled strongly near the pace. After taking the lead inside the final quarter-mile, the market leader briefly looked in trouble when Know swooped down the outside, but Atzeni asked Ger Lyons’ youngster to quicken again and she obliged to triumph by three lengths. Press Association Lyons won this race with Ainippe 12 months ago, and said: “We’ve decided to go the same route as Ainippe with her and as winners’ races are few and far between, the Group 3 Curragh Stakes is the next obvious race. “She’s not over-big but shows plenty of speed and is very professional – she’s a little bullet.” That initiated a brace for Lyons, completed when Cape Wolfe (3-1) landed his hat-trick in the shadows of the post in the Follow Naas Racecourse On Facebook Race. Laganore showed her appreciation for a drop in distance by breaking her duck in the Panoramic Restaurant Maiden. Having finished fifth in maidens over seven furlongs and a mile, Tony Martin’s 8-1 shot finished strongly over six furlongs and saw off Glimmer Of Peace by a length and a quarter. Burren View Lady’s comeback over seven furlongs at Roscommon offered some promise but she has always been more effective as a sprinter and proved as much by winning the ISS HR Services Handicap as a 16-1 chance. Beechmount Whisper looked like finally gaining just reward for a string of placed efforts when shooting clear in the www.naasracecourse.com Apprentice Handicap but he was swamped in the closing stages, with Regal Power (12-1) coming out on top. Kings Ryker (11-4) didn’t stay a mile and a quarter on his most recent outing heading into the Naas Racecourse On Facebook Handicap, but Shane Foley was able to set his own fractions in the mile contest and repelled Hurricane Cass by half a length. Andrea Atzeni made the trip to Naas and was rewarded with a victory on the impressive newcomer Bear Cheek.
