TV editor convicted in criminal defamation case

New York, August 15, 2006—The Committee to Protect Journalists is alarmed by a television editor’s court conviction on a criminal defamation charge. The municipal court in the southern city of Prokuplje upheld a lower court ruling against Slavko Savic, senior editor of the local television station RTV Kursumlija.

The court, ruling on August 10, sentenced Savic to a suspended prison term and one year of probation for defaming Slavko Ilic, a Kursumlija parliament member, in broadcasts in March and April 2005. The broadcasts displayed text messages sent anonymously from viewers who alleged Ilic had stolen a bottle of grape brandy, according to local press reports.
