      Date Friday, Apr 2 1999

      RADIO B92 CLOSED DOWN AND SEALED OFF
      On Friday April 2, at 09.00 CET, court officials together with
      uniformed and plain clothes policemen delivered to Radio B92's
      Director - Sasa Mirkovic - an order from the court announcing his
      dismissal as the station's Director. The decision was taken by the
      government-controlled Council of Youth, the founder of B92. The
      Council replaced Mr. Mirkovic with Mr. Aleksander Nikacevic. The
      police then sealed off the studio and offices of B92, banning the
      station from broadcasting. Shortly after, the stations new
      director - Mr. Nikacevic - issued an order in the presence of
      inspectors to all B92 staff to show up for work on Monday April, 5.
      STRUGGLE CONTINUES. WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER. RADIO B92, BELGRADE,
      SERBIA
