She has headed Insajder, the B92 media group’s flagship investigative TV programme, since 2004. She was just doing her job in November 2009 when she tackled the sensitive issue of links between organized crime and hooligans that support the Belgrade football club Partizan. That may have been her last moment of complete freedom.
