Hiber: Three years' jail for falsifying election results

BELGRADE, Wednesday -- The Democratic Opposition of Serbia will ask the Federal Election Commission to audit its results against the records from polling stations, the vice president of the Civil Alliance of Serbia, Dragor Hiber, said this morning. Hiber reminded members of the Federal Election Commission that the penalty for falsification of election results was three years' imprisonment. Members of the commission would be liable for a further three years' imprisonment if convicted of abusing authority, he added.

Hiber warned that the Democratic Opposition had polling station records signed by all election commission members present and that these unambiguously confirmed that Vojislav Kostunica had won the federal presidency in the first round of the elections.
