      The Serbian Minister for Ownership Transformation, Milan Beko, on
      Monday said that the working draft of the new law on ownership
      transformation offered privatisation ``from the bottom up.''
      Through it, workers would take the fate of their companies into
  25  their own hands.

      Speaking at a media conference, Mr Beko said that the bill would
      the subject of a month-long public discussion, following which it
      would be widely distributed for consultation, promising that ``all
      constructive suggestions'' would be incorporated into the final
  30  draft of the bill, which would probably be tabled in Parliament
      during May.

      The second and third rounds of the bill will open sale of
      companies to all buyers, including foreigners. Mr Beko said that
      employees should take advantage of the advantages given to them in
  35  the first round, as they would have no chance against outside
      bidders in the second and third rounds.


      BK Television's news editor, Srdjan Djuric on Monday said that
      BK's regional transmission had been reactivated. ``PTT has
  40  respected the Arbitration Court decision and switched our
      transmitters back on. This was just the first half of the match,
      and we have won. But this is not the end of the problems BK will
      face in the forthcoming period,'' said Mr Djuric.


  45  UN spokesman Aleksandar Ivanko on Monday told media that
      international police forces and Bosnian Serbs had reached an
      agreement for ten high-ranking police officers from Republika
      Srpska to be sent for advanced training in Denmark. He added that
      these officers would then be deployed in the disputed city of
  50  Brcko.


      The Croatian Government on Monday announced that it will discuss a
      draft agreement on dual citizenship prepared by the Yugoslav
      Government. The agreement is intended to come into effect once
  55  Croatia has assumed power in the Eastern Slavonia region.

      Croatian Foreign Minister Mate Granic told media on Monday that
      the agreement was in the interest of Croats in Yugoslavia, and not
      just Serbs in Eastern Slavonia.


  60  BK Television on Monday night brought together representatives
      from both sides of the political fence for a round table
      discussion on the draft media law. The participants included
      leaders of most major opposition parties as well as Yugoslav Left
      President Ljubisa Ristic and Socialist Party Executive Board
  65  Member Dusan Matkovic.

      Fencing attacks on the government's media policy, the two left
      coalition members heatedly insisted that opposition
      representatives should attend the government's parliamentary panel
      on the new information law, which has so far been boycotted by the
  70  Zajedno coalition.
