SERBIA: SEEMO CALLS ON SERB AUTHORITIES TO WORK ON SOLVING MEDIA FREEDOM VIOLATIONS

SERBIA, 19/06/2016
The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) again expressed deep concern regarding recent developments in the public broadcaster Radio Televizija Vojvodina (RTV) in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Last month, SEEMO helped raise awareness about hasty dismissals that occurred within the regional public broadcaster. The managerial board laid off several editors in a non-transparent manner. The changes may have been political in nature.

‘It is a primary concern of ours to see media issues in RTV resolved as soon as possible’, Oliver Vujovic, SEEMO Secretary General said.

SEEMO is a network of editors, media executives and leading journalists in South, East and Central Europe and its 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.
