  • Description

    IN YUGOSLAVIA, FRIENDS OF MR MIHAJLO MIHAJLOV, THE DETAINED CHALLENGER OF PRESIDENT TITO'S ONE-PARTY STATE, TODAY (THURSDAY) APPLIED FOR LEGAL REGISTRATION FOR A NEW DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST MAGAZINE.

    THE GROUP ALSO APPLIED AT THE POLICE STATION AT ZADAR FOR PERMISSION TO HOLD A PUBLIC MEETING AND DR BATINIC WAS DETAINED.

    PROFESSOR DANIEL IVIN WHO MADE A STATEMENT (SOF) IN YUGOSLAV TO REPORTERS AT MIHAJLOV'S FLAT IN ZADAR, IS HEAD OF THE EDITORIAL BOARD. HE IS A 34-YEAR-OLD JEW WHO WORKS AT ZAGREB HISTORIAL INSTITUTE. FOR FEAR OF INCIDENTS, THE GROUP DECIDED TO CALL OFF THE PLANNED MEETING.

    ONE OF THE EDITORS IS DR MARIJAN BATINIC WHO SPOKE TO REPORTERS (SOF) IN ENGLISH BEFORE HIS ARREST. HE IS A 28-YEAR OLD LITERATURE PROFESSOR FROM ZAGREB AND AN EX-COMMUNIST. HE AND MIHAJLOV ARE BEING HELD PENDING INVESTIGATION OF CHARGES THAT THEY MALICIOUSLY SPREAD FALSE INFORMATION.

    ANOTHER EDITOR IS DR FRANJKO ZENKO, A LECTURER AT THE ZADAR UNIVERSITY COLLEGE. HE SPOKE IN GERMAN (SOF) AND WAS ASKED BY A REPORTER WHETHER THERE WAS ANY SIGN OF PUBLIC INTEREST IN THE GROUP.

    IF THEY SUCCEED IN BRINGING OUT THE MAGAZINE, IT WILL NOT BE THE ONLY NON-COMMUNIST PERIODICAL IN YUGOSLAVIA. BOTH THE ROMAN CATHOLIC AND ORTHODOX CHURCHES HAVE THEIR OWN PUBLICATIONS. BUT IT WILL BE THE FIRST TIME A GROUP OF CITIZENS ISSUES A POLITICAL MAGAZINE AS AN OPEN CHALLENGE TO EXISTING COMMUNIST ORDER IN YUGOSLAVIA.
