    [01] ANOTHER OFFICIAL DETAINED IN CONNECTION WITH ARMENIAN

    PARLIAMENT SHOOTINGS

    Harutiun Harutiunian, the deputy

    director of Armenian National Television, has been detained

    in connection with the 27 October murder of eight senior

    officials, Caucasus Press reported on 6 January, citing ITAR-

    TASS. Fourteen other people have been charged in connection

    with the shootings. LF

    [02] INVESTIGATION INTO AZERBAIJANI PRISON RIOT COMPLETED

    Police

    have completed an investigation into the January 1999 mutiny

    at the high-security Gobustan jail, Turan reported on 5

    January (see "RFE/RL Newsline," 8 and 11 January 1999).

    Twenty-three prisoners and one prison guard have been charged

    in connection with the incident, in which a group of

    prisoners seized hostages and demanded transportation to

    leave the country. One hostage and two prisoners, including

    former Army General Vahid Musaev, were killed when Interior

    Ministry troops stormed the prison. LF

    [03] GEORGIAN COUP SUSPECT DIES IN JAIL

    Former Georgian National

    Security Ministry official Temur Papuashvili died in prison

    on 5 January, Caucasus Press reported the following day.

    Forensic expert Levan Chichua said the probable cause of

    death was acute pneumonia. Papuashvili was one of seven

    people charged with planning a coup d'etat in Georgia last

    May (see "RFE/RL Newsline," 26 May and 30 December 1999).

    Papuashvili had refused to give any evidence during his

    interrogation. LF

    [04] KAZAKHSTAN'S PRESIDENT HOSPITALIZED

    Nursultan Nazarbaev is

    receiving treatment at the Presidential Clinic in Almaty

    after catching a cold during the New Year's Eve celebrations

    in Astana, RFE/RL's correspondent in Almaty reported on 6

    January. For the past week, northern and central Kazakhstan

    have experienced temperatures of -42 degrees Celsius. At

    least five people have frozen to death. LF

    [05] TWO KYRGYZ OPPOSITION PARTIES ALIGN...

    The Ar-Namys (Dignity)

    Party and the Democratic Movement of Kyrgyzstan held separate

    congresses in Bishkek on 5 January at which they announced

    the formation of an electoral alliance for the 20 February

    parliamentary poll, RFE/RL's bureau in the Kyrgyz capital

    reported. The parties also drew up a joint list of 19

    candidates to contest the 15 seats in the new parliament that

    will be allocated under the proportional system. Ar-Namys,

    which is the second largest party in Kyrgyzstan, is barred by

    law from setting up a separate party list as the party was

    formed less than one year before the election date. LF

    [06] ...KYRGYZ OPPOSITION LEADER WOOS RUSSIAN MINORITY...

    Former

    Bishkek Mayor Feliks Kulov, who is chairman of the Ar-Namys

    Party, told the estimated 700 delegates at the party congress

    that, if elected, he will campaign to have the Russian

    language formally recognized in the Kyrgyz Constitution as

    one of the country's official languages, according to ITAR-

    TASS. Kulov also said Ar-Namys will try to ensure as much

    representation as possible for the country ethnic minorities

    in the new parliament. He noted that almost all of the

    deputies in the outgoing parliament are ethnic Kyrgyz. LF

    [07] ...FACES CRIMINAL CHARGES

    The Kyrgyz Prosecutor-General's

    Office has launched criminal proceedings against Kulov on

    charges of illegally confiscating almost half a million

    liters of spirit valued at $1.5 million from the Khimsintez

    company in 1996, when he was governor of Chu Oblast, RFE/RL's

    Bishkek bureau reported on 5 January. Kulov said at the time

    that the spirit had been imported illegally. LF

    [08] TURKMEN PRESIDENT FIRES DEPUTY PREMIER

    Saparmurat Niyazov

    has dismissed Deputy Prime Minister Khudaiberdy Orazov,

    accusing him of professional failings and immodesty in his

    private life, Interfax reported on 5 January. Niyazov

    specifically criticized the shortfall in tax collection,

    which he said has had a negative impacts on macro-economic

    reforms. A former chairman of the Central Bank, Orazov was

    appointed deputy prime minister responsible for the economic

    and finance ministries and the banking sector in a May

    cabinet reshuffle aimed at increasing foreign investment (see

    "RFE/RL Newsline," 25 May 1999). Niyazov appointed current

    Central Bank Chairman Seitbai Kandymov to replace Orazov as

    deputy prime minister. LF

    [09] TURKMENISTAN TO BOOST OIL PRODUCTION

    Turkmenistan will

    produce some 10 million metric tons of oil and gas condensate

    in 2000, which is 3 million more than in 1999, Interfax

    reported on 5 January, citing unnamed Turkmenneft officials.

    The country will also export 33 billion cubic meters of

    natural gas, of which 20 billion will go to Russia and 5

    billion to Iran. Under a 10-year economic development program

    adopted last July, Turkmenistan plans to expand annual oil

    output to 30 million tons by 2010. LF


    [B] SOUTHEASTERN EUROPE

    [10] MONTENEGRIN OFFICIAL CALLS FOR REFERENDUM ON INDEPENDENCE

    Deputy Premier Dragisa Burzan on 5 January said the

    Montenegrin government's platform for redefining relations

    with Belgrade has been "completely superseded, and it is

    impossible to create a joint state with Serbia," the Serbian

    news agency Beta reported, citing the Banja Luka newspaper

    "Nezavisne Novine." Burzan said in an interview that a

    referendum on independence from Belgrade "must be held." He

    said the international community should know that "Montenegro

    is economically independent, that it can survive as an

    independent state, and that its independence would not cause

    a repeat of the instability in the region." PB

    [11] DINAR CIRCULATION IN MONTENEGRO DECREASES SHARPLY

    Dimitrije

    Vesovic, the Montenegrin official in charge of the republic's

    money supply, said on 5 January that the introduction in

    November of the German mark as a parallel currency has been

    successful and that the supply of dinars in the economy has

    sharply decreased, the newspaper "Pobjeda" reported. The

    paper said Montenegro may phase out use of Yugoslavia's

    official currency by the end of this month. PB

    [12] GRANIC CHOSEN BY HDZ AS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE...

    The

    Croatian Democratic Community (HDZ) on 5 January chose

    Foreign Minister Mate Granic to be the party's candidate in

    the country's upcoming presidential election, HINA reported.

    Some 96 percent of the several hundred delegates gathered at

    the party's general assembly voted for Granic. The delegates

    also named party hardliner Vladimir Seks to be acting

    president of the HDZ until a party congress next month. The

    post is viewed as a reward for Seks for giving up his

    ambition to be the party's presidential candidate. "Vjesnik"

    and "Jutarnji list" reported signs of a split in the party

    between hardliners and reformists at the congress, with

    reports of HDZ members exchanging bitter personal charges in

    the aftermath of the parliamentary elections in which the

    party lost its majority. PB

    [13] ...AS EIGHT OTHERS REGISTER FOR ELECTION

    Granic, front-

    runner Drazen Budisa, and Stipe Mesic, who was once a member

    of the former Yugoslavia's federal presidency, lead a pack of

    nine people who will run for president on 24 January, AP

    reported on 5 January. Also entering the race were former

    Justice Minister Zvonimir Separovic, ex-legislator Ante

    Prkacin, right-wing candidates Ante Djapic and Tomislav

    Mercep, sociologist Slaven Letica, and businessman Ante

    Ledic. Campaigning is scheduled to begin on 8 January. Budisa

    and Granic are considered the favorites. PB

    [14] IZETBEGOVIC CONGRATULATES CROATIAN OPPOSITION

    The Muslim

    member of the presidency of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Alija

    Izetbegovic, congratulated Croatia's Social Democratic Party

    and the Croatian Social Liberal Party on their parliamentary

    victory, the Croatian news agency HINA reported on 5 January.

    Izetbegovic said he is convinced that the win will "mark a

    new chapter in the cooperation and good neighborly relations

    between our two countries." Meanwhile, in Tuzla, U.S. members

    of the NATO-led peacekeepers oversaw the destruction of

    thousands of weapons from the demilitarized area of Brcko.

    U.S. Colonel Wallace Matteson said the destruction of

    Serbian, Croatian, and Muslim weapons from Brcko is "going

    well." PB

    [15] KLEIN DECRIES FAILURE TO ARREST KARADZIC

    Jacques Klein, the

    head of the UN mission in Bosnia-Herzegovina, on 5 January

    said indicted war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic remains at

    large due to a lack of political will to arrest him, Reuters

    reported. Klein said that if Karadzic had been arrested

    "three or four years ago, we would be much further along in

    the peace process." He said Karadzic demonstrates "the

    impotence of the West in the face of evil." The NATO-led

    Stabilization Force has arrested 16 war crimes suspects in

    Bosnia so far, but more than 30 others remain at large,

    including Karadzic and his military commander during the

    1992-95 Bosnian war, Ratko Mladic. PB

    [16] SERBIAN POLICE OFFICER REJECTS MEDAL FROM MILOSEVIC

    Belgrade

    Police Captain Slobodan Pajic refused to accept a medal from

    Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic on 5 January, saying

    the government's policies had failed in Kosova, the

    independent daily "Blic" reported. Pajic refused the Knight's

    Sword, saying he doesn't "deserve any medal since innocent

    Serbs and non-Albanians are still being slaughtered in

    Kosovo." He said many men from the Belgrade brigade "were

    either killed or wounded...(and) several of them have gone

    crazy because they were not prepared for such a conflict." In

    other news, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan welcomed the

    release of Australian Branko Jelen, who worked for the

    humanitarian organization CARE and spent the last nine months

    in jail on espionage charges. Jelen was released on 31

    December. PB

    [17] YUGOSLAVIA FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST NATO MEMBERS

    The Yugoslav

    embassy in The Hague on 5 January said the country has filed

    a lawsuit in the UN International Court of Justice that

    accuses eight NATO member-states of violating international

    law with the alliance's air campaign against Yugoslavia last

    year, AFP reported. The suit charges the U.K., France,

    Germany, Italy, Belgium, Portugal, Holland, and Canada of

    "using force against a sovereign state" and of failing "to

    prevent the genocide" of Serbs and non-Albanian ethnic

    groups. The court dismissed an earlier case filed against the

    U.S. and Spain, saying it has no jurisdiction in the matter.

    PB

    [18] KOSOVAR LEADER SAYS ALBANIAN AGENTS WORKING IN KOSOVA

    Bujar

    Bukashi, head of the self-styled "Kosova-Albanian

    government," said on 5 January that Albanian agents are in

    Kosova trying to destabilize the province, dpa reported.

    Bukashi, who lives in a self-imposed exile in Germany, said

    the agents work for the Albanian secret service and are

    "walking freely on the roads of Prishtina." Bukashi is

    involved in a long-running dispute with Albania's current

    Socialist leaders, who backed the Kosova Liberation Army

    (UCK) during its armed insurgence against Serbian forces and

    now support former UCK leader Hashim Thaci, who is Bukashi's

    rival. PB

    [19] MURDERS CONTINUE IN KOSOVA

    A spokeswoman for the UN Interim

    Administration Mission in Kosova said on 5 January that three

    people were murdered in the province over the last two days,

    the Serbian news agency Beta reported. Nadia Jones said a

    Serb was killed in Kosovska Kamenica and that two ethnic

    Albanians were murdered, one in Shtime and the other in Peje.

    She said police have arrested a suspect in the Peje murder.

    PB

    [20] ROMANIAN PRESIDENT MEETS ARAFAT

    Emil Constantinescu on 5

    January met in Bethlehem with Palestinian Authority chairman

    Yasser Arafat and invited him to visit Romania, an RFE/RL

    correspondent in Jerusalem reported. They agreed to set up a

    commission to examine ways of increasing cooperation.

    Constantinescu on the same day concluded the official part of

    his visit to Israel by meeting with a group of local

    businessmen. He then traveled to Jericho with Orthodox

    Patriarch Teoctist, where they both laid the ceremonial first

    stone of a Romanian religious establishment on a piece of

    land that Arafat personally set aside for that purpose.

    Constantinescu and Teoctist are participating in a unique 6-7

    January gathering of representatives from 14 Orthodox

    churches to celebrate the 2,000th anniversary of

    Christianity. Also in attendance are the presidents of

    Belarus, Greece, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, as well as

    former Russian President Boris Yeltsin. MS

    [21] NEW ROMANIAN FOREIGN MINISTER SETS POLICY PRIORITIES

    Petre

    Roman on 5 January said European integration and his

    country's efforts to fulfill EU criteria for membership are

    his ministry's top priorities. Roman said the new Department

    for European Integration in the Foreign Ministry will be

    headed by Eugen Dijmarescu, formerly Romania's ambassador to

    Japan. Dijmarescu will hold the rank of deputy minister,

    RFE/RL's Bucharest bureau reported. He also said that EU

    Commission Chairman Romano Prodi will visit Bucharest on 13

    January and will participate in a Romanian cabinet meeting.

    Meanwhile, the Central Statistical Board on 5 January said

    Romania's GDP in 1999 dropped by 5.4 percent compared with

    the previous year. MS

    [22] OSCE 'WORRIED' BY RUSSIA'S POSITION OVER TRANSDNIESTER

    MILITARY EVACUATION

    General Roman Hormoza, deputy chief of

    the OSCE mission to Moldova, on 5 January said the OSCE is

    "worried" by Russia's decision to link the evacuation of its

    military arsenal from the Transdniester with a political

    settlement on the special status of the separatist republic

    within Moldova, RFE/RL's Chisinau bureau reported. Hormoza

    said Russia's stance is "unjustified." He said the arsenal

    that was left in the Transdniester after the evacuation of

    the former 14th Army far exceeds the needs of the present

    Russian contingent in the region. According to OSCE data,

    there are some 20 tons of military equipment for every

    Russian soldier the Transdniester. Hormoza described the

    ratio as "unmatched in any other military contingent in the

    world." He added that the OSCE is worried by the position of

    the Transdniester separatists, who do not accept the

    agreements that were reached at the Istanbul OSCE summit last

    year. MS

    [23] FORMER DEFENSE, SECURITY MINISTER APPOINTED MOLDOVAN SECURITY

    SERVICE CHIEF

    President Petru Lucinschi on 5 January

    appointed Valeriu Pasat to head the newly-created Information

    and Security Service, RFE/RL's Chisinau bureau reported.

    Pasat served as defense minster from January 1997 to May

    1999. Since then, he has served as national security

    minister. MS

    [24] BULGARIA MAKES APPEAL TO ITALY OVER DETAINED SHIP CREW

    Bulgaria on 5 January asked Italy to speed up its

    investigation into the case of a Bulgarian cargo ship that

    was detained in Italy in December 1999 after 321 illegal

    migrants were discovered on board. Foreign Ministry spokesman

    Radko Vlaikov said the captain claims that migrants hijacked

    the ship when it stopped in northwest Turkey and forced the

    crew to sail to Italy. Vlaikov said Bulgaria wants a "fair

    investigation" into how the migrants got on board and whether

    the crew assisted them, Reuters reported. MS


    [C] END NOTE

    [25] WHO'S WHO IN RUSSIA'S NEW STATE DUMA

    Russia's Central Election Commission on 29 December released

    the final results of the State Duma elections held 10 days

    earlier. The following table shows those parties and

    movements that managed to surpass the five-percent barrier as

    well as the percentage of votes they captured. Also listed

    are the deputies that were elected on their parties' federal

    list and in single-mandate districts. As more information

    comes in on deputies' party affiliations and as deputies

    switch parties, RFE/RL will update this list on its website,

    . Additional changes should also be

    expected on 19 March when eight regions must hold a second

    round of elections. (Also, for a more complete listing of
