blows the whistle on broadcast lies
BELGRADE, Monday 12 May 2003 – The wife of Broadcast
Agency Council nominee Goran Radenovic alleged today
that her husband had lied in support of his candidacy
for the Council.
Radenovic was proposed as the ninth member of the
Council, a position reserved by law for a councillor
who lives and works permanently in Kosovo.
His election caused an outcry from Kosovo Serb political

Ivanka Radenovic today showed B92 a marriage certificate
proving that she is Radenovic’s wife.
She also produced his official academic record from

“Mr Radenovic has been registered with the Refugee
Commission here in Belgrade as a displaced person
since April 8, 2001.
“He lives and works in Podgorica and at present works,
as far as I know, for a company called Pink Television.

works, but I do know that he is not permanently employed
by them because he has no work permit: he has lost
“As he himself says, his official employer is at
present the company MBV,” said Ivanka Radenovic.
In addition to her marriage certificate and her husband’s
academic record, Mrs Radenovic today also produced

which describe him as a refugee from Kosovo residing
