Serbia’s journalists condemn attacks on colleague Izvor: N1

“Female Journalists Against Violence over Women” group condemned on Tuesday attacks on their colleague Tamara Skrozza, which, as they said in a statement, Serbia’s Prime Minister and President’s media advisor joined too, N1 reported.

The Group reminded the Constitution guaranteed the freedom of media and expression.

“We join the Vreme weekly (which Skrozza works for) appeal for the campaign against Skrozza to stop,” the statement said.

In its reaction to an article by Prime Minister Ana Brnabic published in pro-government Politika daily, Vreme said that “a shameful campaign of insinuations, falsehood and attacks on Vreme journalist Tamara Skrozza has reached its peak.”

The weekly said that “a series of synchronised two-weeks long targeting started by President (Aleksandar Vucic) media advisor Suzana Vasiljevic, continued by the Regulatory Body for Electronic Media (REM) with cynicism which actually was a hidden threat, to be sealed by Brnabic as a perfidious campaign of threatening and open persecution of our colleague.”

Skrozza said she saw "the fact that Prime Minister Ana Brnabic mentioned me in her article in Politika daily, trying to discredit me professionally and morally, as only the last in the series of almost simultaneous attacks on me.”

Brnabic mentioned Skrozza article from 2017 in which she criticised what she said was a false image of the media situation in Serbia presented by some analysts in Brussels and the European Union turning a blind eye on that.

Prime Minister said “making lists of ‘civil’ Serbia started in December 2017” in Skrozza’s article headlined ‘BrusselsTheatre of the Absurd.’
