In his article on the plight of Yugoslav universities, Dejan Djokic ("An isolated academy is no good for democracy", THES, July 14) fails to mention that academics critical of the government have been replaced by those more likely to toe the Milosevic line.
My niece, a law student in Belgrade now washing dishes on sub-minimum wage rates in a Manchester restaurant, tells me that Vogislav Seslj, the leader of the rightwing Radical Party and contributor to the impoverishment and demoralisation of the Serbian people, delivers a compulsory course for undergraduates at the university. Students arriving late at his lectures have little difficulty in finding a seat.
