Dokic's woes

A JUDGE yesterday ordered that the father of Australian tennis player Jelena Dokic remain in jail for 30 days pending an investigation into his alleged threats against the Australian ambassador in Belgrade.

Damir Dokic was detained in his home in Serbia on Wednesday. Police said they found seven hunting rifles, a gun and two bombs during the search of his house. Serbian newspaper Blic quoted Damir Dokic as saying he had called the Australian embassy and threatened to "fire a rocket" on the car belonging to the ambassador to Serbia. Dokic said he was angry over an interview his daughter gave to Australia's Sport&Style magazine in which she accused him of beating her. He added that "there is no child that was not beaten by parents - the same with Jelena."
