Dear Mr. President:
It is with much concern that I am addressing this letter to you regarding the continuing gross violations of political and human rights that are taking place under the regime in Yugoslavia. The blatant violations against the people have increased even more since the recent municipal elections.
The indisputable election victories of the Yugoslav Opposition Democratic block "Together" coalition in the majority of the municipalities in Serbia, including in the capital Belgrade, have clearly shown the will of the people must be respected by the ruling regime. Yet the regime in power are refusing to concede the electoral losses they have very clearly suffered. Instead, they are resorting to the manipulation of electoral results and brutal intimidation of the opposition and general populace with the violent state security police force and threats of electoral annulment.
I appeal to you and the United States Government to unequivocally condemn all such undemocratic behavior by a regime which for the sake of retaining power at all cost dares to stoop to such heinous practices as outright lies in the state controlled electronic media and written media, and the unscrupulous stealing of the popular vote.
Trusting that you Mr. President and the United States Government will positively respond to this appeal and thus demonstrate the resolve of your great democracy to help the people of Serbia clear desire to change to democracy. The people have indicated through the polls their will to repudiate the countrys oppressive communist past in favor of a long delayed democratic change respecting all people, religions and ethnic origin. It cannot be denied that the people of Serbia clearly yearn, as demonstrated in the recent polls, to be part of the democratic brotherhood of nations and show the world that they are also capable in building a better future for all the people who live in today's Yugoslavia. The people of Yugoslavia have had enough of the mutated communist regime tactics of disinformation, deception and deceit.
Alexander of Yugoslavia
