KOSOVO, KOSOVO, 11/06/2015
The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) condemns an attack on the office of KoSSev news portal in Mitrovica, Kosovo.
The headquarters of the portal was shot several times, and bullets were found both outside and inside the office. Police have been notified and are working on the case.
“The fact that someone shot at the office of a media outlet in Kosovo is atrocious. We call on authorities and relevant institutions to react and solve this case as soon as possible. Journalists in Kosovo undertake their work to benefit the public interest, and deserve a safe environment to carry out this important task. Such horrendous threats to their lives and safety is intolerable. We hope to see results soon”, SEEMO Secretary General Oliver Vujovic has stated.
The press freedom work of the South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) is supported by the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) project, as part of a grant by the European Commission.
