New names: Dusan Naric, Ljubisa Brkic: There is concern at reports that on 28 January 1997 police reportedly beat demonstrators in the town of Smederevska Palanka, including a parliamentary deputy, Dusan Naric, and local town councillor Ljubisa Brkic. The demonstration was reportedly held after a new town council was convened that day by councillors from the ruling Socialist Party of Serbia. The opposition coalition, Zajedno, believes it won local elections in Smederevska Palanka, a claim supported by the findings of a fact-finding mission from the OSCE.
