MOLDOVA: Threatened aftter publishing stories about the head of Moldova's Orthodox Church

MOLDOVA, 17/09/2014

The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), condemns threats made against Ziarul de Garda, a Moldovan newspaper.

The paper allegedly received threats after publishing investigative stories about the head of Moldova's Orthodox Church, Metropolitan Vladimir. After publishing the stories on 4 and 11 September, the newspaper was threatened by phone.

SEEMO asks Moldovan authorities to react and investigate the threats Ziarul de Garda received. Newspapers and investigative journalists must have a free, safe environment for work within their own country. SEEMO believes that verbal threats are not the way to express dissatisfaction with media coverage.
