Serbian term or phrase:Ni. 14,48
What does the 'Ni' mean here? Also, there is a strange thing they did with the date. It stands '4. 0 11' (handwritten) and that the person should show up at court 'u sredu' 'sati', at '5. 0 11, 2002' which isn't a Wednesday, according to my calendar, on that day (plus they didn't specify the time). What could this zero mean here (and before), or was it just a mistake (in both cases where they wrote the date)?
Explanation: Ni could be Nickel (chemical element), but other then that it could be short for anything else! As for the 14,48... I can not help you with that since it seems to explain the Ni. substring! Could be weight of a package sent by airmail or anything else. (The airmail package thing was optional. I didn't really mean it!).
As for '4. 0 11' I trust that 0 is actually O and stands for October. Since in Serbian you never write a 'dot' after the month if it is written in words. And the 11 could just as well mean a date mark, but I wouldn't stick to that as a final explanation.
Then: 'u sredu' 'sati' '5. 0 11, 2002' would mean: Wednesday : Hours : date as it is, but the zero or as I mentioned that it could be an O would make it hard to understand, cause if you remove either O or 11 to make it a month mark the 5th in both cases wasn't Wednesday.
My conclusion is that those might not even be dates! They could be the values of a certain column in an unmarked table something like this:
Time : Date (meaning time just in hours) - making it:
5h AM/PM? : O 11 2002 as in October (M) - 11 (D) - 2002 (Y).
Try that, may help. I just switched the date time into time date order and changed the normal Serbian DD.MM.YYYY. Into m. DD YYYY order! Not much of a research, but a wild guess, yet it might help!
