The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) recently commemorated the eleventh anniversary since Dusko Jovanovic, editor-in-chief and founder of the daily Dan, was murdered on 27 May 2004.
After several investigations and court trials in the past eleven years, many details connected to the murder of the journalist are still not clear.
“It is almost unbelievable that so much time has passed and so little has been done. It sends a very bad signal not only about the state of media in Montenegro, but also the state of basic human rights” SEEMO Secretary General Oliver Vujovic has stated. “We call on the authorities in Podgorica to take real action to find and arrest all responsible persons in the killing of Jovanovic”, he added.
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.
