Macedonia (Republic of Macedonia) FYROM, 22/05/2014
The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) condemns the behaviour of the police officers in Republic of Macedonia- FYROM. Journalists working for Nova, Free Europe and Fokus magazine, Saska Cvetkovska, Marija Mitevska and Meri Jordanovska were reporting from a protest in Gorce Petrov, one of the municipalities of Skopje, when the local police made pressure on the journalists to delete the photo and video materials from the protest.
“It is alarming, that we have still police officers who believe that they can stop journalists in doing the job”, Oliver Vujovic, SEEMO Secretary General said. “Protests and demonstrations are always events of public interest and the public has a right to know what is happening”, Vujovic added.
