Vienna, 18 June 2017 – The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) expressed concern after claims of politically motivated retaliation have been raised against a media company in Serbia, Adria Media Group (AMG) and ist owner Aleksandar Rodic.
This was followed immediately by a statement issued by a leading politician in the country in which he accuses Rodic of being involved in “illegal acts” without providing any proof, as well as labeling him as a “Croatian spy”, “Albanian mercenary”, “traitor” etc.
“SEEMO will be following the problems of daily Kurir and AMG company closely” Oliver Vujovic, SEEMO Secretary General stated. </p>
