Hunger striking journalist in Serbia taken for medical check-up Izvor: N1

The owner of the local Channel 9 from the northern city of Novi Sad Maja Pavlovic who has been on hunger strike for 23 days, was taken for a medical check-up after which she said he would continue with the strike and was ready for a meeting with Prime Minister Ana Brnabic later on Tuesday, the Beta news agency reported.

Pavlovic was administrated an infusion at the Belgrade Emergency Room, after which she said she felt better.

She told the Belgrade Prva TV he would continue with the strike until four out of her nine requests were met to enable her television to continue with regular work.

The TV account was unblocked on Monday, but the money the TV had to pay for different duties was not returned to it, as Pavlovic asked, pending the Constitutional Court ruling on the amount of taxes local media were due to pay.

Among other demands, she requested that the Novi Sad Mayor Milos Vucevic from the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) led by President Aleksandar Vucic, stop discriminating the independent Channel 9 which existed 20 years and provide it with equal access to state media funds.
