The Vienna-based South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), an affiliate of the International Press Institute (IPI), condemns the July 10, 2012 attack against Kosovo journalist Halil Matoshi who told Kosovo KTV that he was beaten by three unidentified men.
Matoshi, a commentator with the Koha Ditore daily, was attacked as he returned home in Pristina. One of the aggressors pulled out a knife but Matoshi managed to avoid serious injury. He was nonetheless treated in hospital. The police said they were investigating the assault with the aim of identifying those responsible.
“I call on the police to find the perpetrators as soon as possible and bring them to justice,” said SEEMO Secretary General Oliver Vujovic.
