Hunger striking Serbia’s journalist says she is exhausted, but will not stop Izvor: N1

Maja Pavlovic, the owner of the local Channel 9 from the northern city of Novi Sad, told N1 on Monday that promises about meeting her demands had not been fulfilled and that though she was exhausted on the 22nd day of her hunger strike she was ready to go to the end.

Her demands are related to the state decisions and economic pressure which put the independent Channel 9 in an unequal position compared to media close to the authorities.

Speaking to N1 outside the state Regulatory Body for Electronic Media (REM) where she was striking, Pavlovic said she was told the order to unblock the Channel account was issued, but the money that was taken from it according to courts’ decisions she was challenging, was not returned.

 The other Pavlovic’s request to stop the procedures against the Channel while the Constitutional Court rules on the regularity of the prices the broadcasters now pay hasn’t also been met.

“I expected everything would be solved until Monday as promised, but since it didn’t happen, it is pretty unrealistic to expect that in the next hour,” Pavlovic, who doctors were trying to persuade to accept infusion urgently, said.

She added she would meet Prime Minister Ana Brnabic on Tuesday, adding she expected to talk to her about the remaining demands.

“She (Brnabic) said she was waiting for answers from all relevant institutions regarding the problem so that it can be solved,” Pavlovic said.
