SERBIA: SEEMO calls for legal actions against attacker of reporter

SERBIA, 11/02/2015

The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) calls for legal actions against the attacker of a cameraman during a protest in Brussels. A reporter from the Serbian news agency Tanjug approached a group of Kosovo-Albanians who were protesting on 10 February 2015 in Brussels to interview them, when one participant of the demonstration slapped the cameraman, leaving him with a cut lip.

When the cameraman asked the Belgian police forces for help, he was directed to move away from the protesters, and file a lawsuit against the attacker.

“Police should protect journalists during demonstrations. I call on the police and authorities in Brussels to investigate the case and protect better in future journalists who are reporting from public events" Oliver Vujovic, SEEMO Secretary General said.
