Ombudsman Zoran Pasalic said on Monday that journalists in Serbia have been faced with difficult working conditions over the past few years, including physical and verbal assaults.

 He said in a press release on International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists that the data base of attacks on journalists which the office of the Ombudsman is setting up will be a form of system support. “The data base will be in support of the independence of journalists with the institution of the Ombudsman as a top tier independent institution which protects human rights,” he said.  

Pasalic recalled his earlier warnings about the bad situation in the media and calls to punish anyone threatening or attacking journalists as well as the murders of journalists which have not been solved after several years.
