Fabrizi: Media freedom key issue, we'll carefully monitor situation in Serbia Izvor: N1

Sem Fabrizi, the head of the European Union Delegation in Serbia said on Tuesday that the media freedom was one of vital elements in Belgrade's Euro-integration and that the bloc would attentively watch the media scene in the country, N1 reported.

 "The freedom of media is one of the key topics in the accession process and me constantly advocate the improvement in that area," Fabrizi said at the presentation of the 'EU Pulse of Europe – Media Visits to EU' project in support of the media in Serbia.    

He welcomed the adoption of the new Media Strategy and said the EU would present its findings related to Serbia's media scene in its new annual report.

"The project is a part of broader attempts to fulfil the needs of the media community in Serbia. The empowering of the journalists, investigative journalism, professionalism and media independence are the goal that fits into our list," Fabrizi said, adding the EU had already given Serbia grants worth 1.2 million Euro in support of the media scene.

The EU finances the project which is handled by the Goethe Institute in cooperation with the Independent Association of Serbia's Journalists (NUNS) and the Centre for Cultural decontamination.
