OSCE’s Desir condemns targeting of N1 Journalists Izvor: N1

The OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Harlem Désir on Friday “denounced” a recent incident which he said “targeted N1 TV journalists”.

“I strongly denounce any attempt or action that could endanger journalists’ safety. Targeting media professionals with the intent of presenting them as foreign mercenaries is a dangerous and unacceptable behavior, and must be met with condemnation and effective prosecution,” Désir is quoted as saying following the October 14 incident in which two masked men threw anti-N1 leaflets into the station grounds. The leaflets said - Goodbye Republic of Serbia, N1 Welcome to Luxembourg.

Desir welcomed the the swift reaction by the police, urging them to identify and bring the perpetrators to justice as soon as possible. “Only an effective investigation will prevent future similar incidents, and enable all journalists to work in a safe environment and free from any kind of pressure,” Désir said.

Desir said that the 57 OSCE member states need to implement the Ministerial Council Decision on Safety of Journalists which was adopted in December 2018 and noted that N1 journalists were threatened and targeted in other ways a number of times in 2019.
