18:16 NEDELJNI TELEGRAF - the Exclusive Discussion between President Kostunica and PM Djindjic on Extradition of Milosevic

The NEDELJNI TELEGRAF Belgrade weekly in its special number dealing with extradition of Slobodan Milosevic to The Hague Tribunal, publishes a number of exclusive pictures and the transcript of the phone discussion about extradition between Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica and Serb PM Zoran Djindjic before the departure of the latter to talks with William Montgomery, the U.S. Ambassador to Yugoslavia.

This is the transcript made by NEDELJNI TELEGRAF:

PM Djindjic: "What shall I say to Montgomery?"

President Kostunica remains silent...

PM Djindjic: "Very well then, in this case I will resign, and you rule alone!"

President Kostunica: "Come on, don't rush, we need no quarrels."

PM Djindjic: "All right, but what shall I say? Yes or no?"

President Kostunica (after a pause): "Yes."




The George Soros foundation does not fund Emperor's Clothes. Our only source of money is people like you. All contributions help, big and small.

Our work has expanded but our income has not. We are now several months behind on long distance and international phone bills.

All but local service has been turned off.

We have other big bills too, including for Lexis, our key research tool.

We use long distance for interviews (if we need a translator, this involves a three-way call) to consult with writers, to check the accuracy of information and sometimes to discuss articles being translated. We also use international calls to help write and edit articles for media besides Emperor's Clothes.

Using international long distance, we were able to stay in constant touch with the unarmed witnesses guarding Mr. Miloshevich's house when it was attacked March 28th and 29th. That is why you could read accurate news on Emperor's Clothes - the only honest reports available anywhere.

After the attack, by using international phone calls we were able to talk directly with people involved in the negotiations between Mr. Miloshevich and the current Serbian authorities. So we knew first hand that the 'NY Times' report that Mr. Miloshevich was suicidal during the talks was a lie.

Because we need to use the phone so much, our bills are well over a thousand dollars a month. Now our long distance and international service has been turned off because we owe almost $5000. We are in danger of losing phone service altogether. In addition, we owe over $1500 to Lexis, a key research tool, which allows us to check the accuracy of newspaper excerpts and quotes over the past 20 years.

If everyone who cares about Emperor's Clothes chips in, we'll be out of trouble in no time.

Any help you can send will be greatly appreciated! $20, $50, $100 or $1000 - it will all help.
