[Emperor's Clothes]

Warning from the Foreign Bureau of Serbian Socialist Party:


At 3:00 Eastern U.S. time, Emperor's Clothes received the following updated
warning from the Serbian Socialist party:

"This evening seven jeeps, one van and one medical vehicle filled with armed
people in black uniforms surrounded the home of President Milosevic in Uzicka
street in Belgrade. Socialist MPs have left the session of the Serbian
Parliament and joined the unarmed peoples' guards around the President's
home. There are about 350 people guarding the home. The intruders have set up
a traffic blockade, but have made no other move, up to now. The situation
remains tense.

"The SPS warns NATO and its proxy forces in Belgrade to leave President
Miloshevich in peace. Do not attempt any assault on him. Any such action
could be harmful and dangerous to all, that is, to Serbia, to the entire
Balkans region and also to NATO including the USA. What is going on outside
President Miloshevich's house is an obvious demonstration of loyalty by the
new regime in Belgrade, catering to the deadline set by the U.S. Congress.
Even if they do not make a serious attempt to arrest President Miloshevich,
since this provocative activity is taking place without official reaction
from the authorities, we must conclude that the provocation is occuring with
their consent. Thus, whether this is a test or a real attempt on the life or
freedom of President Miloshevich, it is very dangerous action and clearly
connected with American demands.

"The SPS urges people of good will in other countries to take immediate
action to protest this provocation by the Belgrade authorities.
Demonstrations at the Yugoslav Embassies and Consulates would therefore be
most welcome."

Latest news: Thousands of people have gone to President Miloshevich's house
to guard him from attack.

Emperor's Clothes has as of now now (3:15 Eastern U.S. time) spoken to
eye-witnesses in Serbia. We learned that a police car had been observed near
the President's house, apparently to check out what was going on, and had
then left. Nobody seems to know who the men are in the seven jeeps, but some
of the unarmed people outside the President's house saw that the men were
armed and dressed in black. The windows of the jeeps are dark, so nobody can
see inside.

The issue has been raised on the floor of the Serbian Parliament by Bane
Ivkovich, leader of the SPS Parliamentary group. Ivkovich stated that all SPS
MPs would leave the Parliament and go, unarmed, to join the people guarding
the President's house. Ivkovich then proceeded to Miloshevich's home, went
inside, met with Miloshevich, and came outside to convey to the unarmed
civilians the President's thanks for their bravery and patriotism.

In the Serbian Parliament, Mr. Seshel (Sesjl), head of the nationalist
Radical Party stated the following: "DOS extremists should be very careful
before they shed blood today, for if that should occur, there is no
prediciting what may follow tomorrow."

In Serbia, the TV news just reported two speculations concerning the
situation. One source, connected to the government of Serbia, said that they
had issued a warrant for Miloshevich's arrest and had sent these men but with
orders to do carry it out without violence; hence, when they encountered the
350 people, they retreated.

Another TV report, quoting someone close to the police, said that these were
new guards from the government security service who had gone to replace the
present guards but that the security people presently guarding the President
refused to allow the new men in, and therefore the new men had retreated.

Update 3:15 - Eyewitnesses report that thousands of people have gone to
protect Miloshevich's house. The armed men in black are still present in the
