, Index number: EUR 70/003/1997

Vesna Pesic (f), parliamentary deputy; Ljubivoj (Ljuba) Tadic, actor; Sergei Karazy, cameraman; and others: On the night of 2-3 February 1997 police charged and beat demonstrators at Brankov Bridge in Belgrade. Among those injured were Vesna Pesic, leader of the opposition party Civil Alliance, Ljuba Tadic, an actor, and several journalists and television cameramen, including Sergei Karazy, a cameraman for Reuters news agency. Amnesty International is calling on the authorities to desist from any further violence against peaceful demonstrators and to instigate a thorough investigation into these and other recent reports of ill-treatment by police.
