SERBIA, SERBIA, 21/01/2015, 09:00

The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) was pleased to hear about the new developments in the murder case of the Serbian journalist Milan Panic.

Milan Pantic, a journalist from Jagodina in Serbia was beaten to death by unknown perpetrators on 11 June 2001. His death is thought to be in connection with his investigative work about crime connections in that city. The Commission for solving the murders of journalists reopened his case, along with other unsolved cases, Slavko Curuvija and Vladislava Dada Vujasinovic.

In the past several months, a police group is said to have worked on revealing new details connected to the cases, and allegedly there has been a breakthrough in the Pantic incident.

“SEEMO and its members strongly support the much needed investigation and development in these murder cases. Journalists and the public deserve to know who is behind the killing of the journalist.” SEEMO Secretary General Oliver Vujovic said.
