The international journalists’ organisations condemned on Thursday the detention of Serbia’s journalist Ana Lalic, a Nova.rs website reporter late on Wednesday after publishing a story about the lack of protective gear for medical staff in a clinical centre, the Beta news agency reported.

 On its Twitter account, the International Press Institute (IPI) condemned the detention of Ana Lalic, a journalist with Nova.rs website for ‘spreading panic’ and ‘damaging the image of the clinic centre,’ after she wrote that the doctors lacked protective gear for COVID-19.

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) joined the protest against the detention of Lalic, adding the reporter worked “in the public interest.”

Lalic was arrested after the Vojvodina Clinical Centre reported her to the authorities for writing a story about dare conditions in the Centre.

She was released on Thursday morning, but her two mobile phones and laptop that were confiscated were not returned.
