Yugoslav President-Elect Kostunica Rails Against Injustices of Serb Legal SystemAired October 6, 2000 - 3:37 p.m. ET
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
LOU WATERS: We're going to Serb television now.
VOJISLAV KOSTUNICA, YUGOSLAV PRESIDENT-ELECT: Talking in general, is there any aspect of social life that is more important than the education?
QUESTION: I will add that the law, you are a lawyer, and the law is also a very important aspect.
KOSTUNICA: That's true. Law guarantees something that is important, equal rights to all. It brings security, the equal life brings security. It allows you to plan something for tomorrow. That is very important; and that's what our law lacked. It was full of relativity. Of some simply ad-hoc deciding depending on one moment or some party's interest. Law must become something which is beyond every politics.
WATERS: Serbian television continuing with its interview of the president-elect, Kostunica, who said earlier that he hoped the sanctions, now, would be lifted; and the president of the United States, speaking simultaneously while Kostunica was being interviewed on Serbian television, saying the United States and the rest of the international community must do something immediately to reward the Serbian people for, as he put it, their heroic effort to unseat Milosevic.
As far as Milosevic is concerned, the president said it is unclear what the Russian intentions are regarding the future of Milosevic. Until there is a clear and unambiguous restoration of democracy, then and only then can the international community restore -- can and will restore those sanctions.
