CPJ: Serbia must do more to protect media freedom Izvor: N1

The ongoing trial in the case of journalist Milan Jovanovic, who was the target of an arson attack, as well as the reversal of the first-instance verdict for the murder of Slavko Curuvija, are “indicators of the state of media freedoms in Serbia," said Europe and Central Asia Program Coordinator at the Committee to Protect Journalists, Gulnoza Said.

Those two cases prove that space for the media to act freely is narrowing in Serbia, she said.

"I think it is important for Serbian authorities at local and higher levels to emphasize their full commitment to respecting the right of journalists to report freely. As well as to ensure that perpetrators of crimes, in this case, those who ordered and carried out the arson attack, are punished - no matter the posts they serve at the local or national level, “ Said told Voice of America.
