07.08.2023 – SEEMO Condemns Threats to Kosovo Media

South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) condemns recent threats to Serbian-language media outlets in Kosovo, including Radio Kosovska Mitrovica, Kosovo Online, Radio Kontakt Plus, TV Most, and KoSSev. In one Telegram channel in Serbian language several statements and two videos labeled these media as “enemies of the Serbian people.”

Only two months ago in June, Tatjana Lazarevic, editor of the web portal KoSSev, received threats after masked persons prevented her from doing her job at a Serb protest in northern Mitrovica in Kosovo.

SEEMO calls on the authorities to investigate these threats, as they pose a serious threat to the safety of all journalists working in Kosovo.
