Lawyers for N1 TV called the police on Thursday to make a security assessment for journalist Jelena Zoric following threats against her by a lawyer.

Zoric was threatened verbally on two separate days in front of the Special Court Section on organized crime building by a lawyer defending a man charged with heading an organized crime group operating a marijuana farm. Zoric reported on the case and the trial.

N1 TV’s lawyers filed an official request with the Directorate of Police for a security assessment which they want the police to follow up with appropriate measures to ensure Zoric’s security.

The threats have been condemned by the Independent Journalists’ Association of Serbia (NUNS) and the Journalists’ Association of Serbia (UNS) while the lawyer rejected the reports of threats as incorrect and ill-intentioned.
