Controversy Over Independent Bosian TV
PRAGUE, Czech Republic, 97/01/08 (OMRI) -- Kosta Jovanovic, news director
of TVIN, Bosnia's internationally funded independent television network,
said on 7 January that TVIN was resuming broadcasting after having stopped
on 1 January due to satellite problems, Oslobodjenje reported.
But when the station went silent, the Bosnian Federation's state-run
media launched a campaign saying that the station had stopped broadcasting
because of a financial scandal in which local stations contributing to
TVIN's broadcast were cheated, AFP reported on 5 January. Jovanovic said
the accusations were a deliberate attempt to discredit the network before
the Brussels fund-raising conference. In other news, Bosnia-Herzegovina is
supposed to take up the presidency of the Central European Initiative (CEI)
in 1997, AFP reported on 4 January.
