09.03.2023 – Journalist from FoNet agency attacked after ‘Students for Kosovo’ protest

On Monday, 6 March, 2023, journalist Marko Dragoslavić from the Fonet agency in Serbia was physically attacked after a “Students for Kosovo” protest in Takovska Street in Belgrade.

The incident took place near the Serbian government building. According to witnesses the attacker had a black jacket.

After the attack, Dragoslavić was examined in a hospital.

The protest was organised by persons who are against the EU plan for the normalisation of relations between Kosovo and Serbia. The protest, where also some representatives of Serbian right-wing parties and groups participated, started at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade.

This was the second attack on Fonet journalist Dragoslavić in this year.

The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) condemns both attacks and is alarmed about attack and threats against journalists in Serbia.
