Maja Gojkovic, Serbia's Minister of Culture and Information, said on Monday her Ministry could not react to, what she described as the market game between state-owned Telekom Serbia and Czech private Telenor company, regardless of the Telekom's undenied plan to destroy United Media's SBB and its N1 and Nova S Tv channels.

„I cannot find any law provision which will oblige information minister or the Ministry to react to the market game by several cable operators, two or three now. If there is any legal provision for the Ministry to do something, we will, and you will get a more profound answer than the one given on Sunday,“ Gojkovic said.


Answering the United Media’s letter to her and Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, Gojkovic said  her Ministry did not have jurisdiction over the issue, „since media freedom and market competition are not the same things at all.“
