05/06/2014: SERBIA – BLIC – SERBIA

Vienna, 05/06/2014

The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) condemns statements by the Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic connected to the daily newspaper Blic. After Blic published a newspaper investigation about his advisor, Nikolic asked ” Are the editors aware that they are trying to reduce my reputation in the eyes of the citizens of Serbia, the reputation of the institution of the President?” For SEEMO this is a clear pressure by the Serbian President on the editorial policy of the daily Blic.
