The Independent Journalists’ Association of Serbia (NUNS) condemned the latest incident directed against N1 TV and called the authorities to do whatever is necessary to stop the frequent intimidation of the station’s journalists.

Two unidentified men threw hundreds of leaflets across the fence around the N1 building on Monday evening. The leaflets read: Republic of Serbia Goodbye, N1 Welcome to Luxembourg. A simulated border crossing was erected outside the gates over the weekend with a similar sign.  

A NUNS statement said that top state officials and the leadership of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) headed by President Aleksandar Vucic have been making highly malicious, demeaning, discriminatory and offensive statements directed against N1 TV, inspiring and encouraging hostile acts against the station. “Despite declarative statements by key holders of top posts about guaranteed journalist and media freedom in Serbia, it has been obvious for a long time that the journalists and news desks whose policies are not to the liking of the authorities are subjected to various forms of intimidation and danger to their professional and physical safety,” the NUNS statement said.  

The statement said the two incidents are part of organized activities aimed at intimidating journalists and exerting pressure on N1 TV editorial policies.
