On September 22 Politika published a fictitious "Denial by Dr. Srdja Trifkovic" -- an excerpt from The Lord Byron Foundation statement on the affair, taken out of context -- in spite of Dr. Trifkovic's insistence, in a letter to the paper's editor (Sept. 20), that he wanted nothing published under his name in its pages.
