The Vienna-based South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) condemns a recent attack against Romanian journalists.

A group of journalists was threatened while reporting on a case of gang rape in Vaslui County on 23 July. Individuals were trying to physically attack the media workers, but were stopped when police officers intervened.

SEEMO urges authorities in Romania to initiate a through and transparent investigation of the case.

SEEMO’s press freedom work is supported by the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) project, as part of a grant by the European Commission.
