The ongoing campaign targeting N1 TV’s Programme Director Jugoslav Cosic, which is full of lies and insults, is dangerously similar to what has happened in some previous times, Cosic's legal representative, Zdenko Tomanovic, said in a statement on Saturday.
He pointed out that the assistance of the US Embassy, IREX and other Western media development funds, as well as a business project between one of Albania's largest companies and a Serbian firm, have been called "bloody American-Shqiptar cash".
Tomanovic also noted that "a fake photo of a successful Albanian businessman was published and the owner of TV A2 CNN Albania was labelled a mobster and drug dealer, while Yugoslav Cosic was labelled a Shqiptar mercenary."
He said that this has "created the conditions for violence against justice to escalate into violence against an individual who has now been marked as the leader of a news team waging a special war against Serbia and the Serbs."
"The justified concerns about our client's safety require a security assessment of the level of threat which we will ask the competent services and state authorities to conduct," Tomanovic announced.
