Bomb alerts sent to editorial departments and journalists’ association

June 15, 2022

Serbia has been rocked over recent weeks by reports of bombs planted in a large number of cities. These fortunately false reports targeted airports, state institutions, schools and shopping centres.

Similar bomb alerts recently also targeted individual press editorial departments and the Journalists’ Association of Serbia. Following police checks, it was confirmed that false bomb alerts had been made at the headquarters of Adria Media Group, on the premises of local Bečej weekly Bečejski Mozaik, Radio Television Vojvodina and the Journalists’ Association of Serbia (UNS), with this building also housing the Independent Journalists’ Association of Serbia (NUNS).

NUNS condemned the bomb threats and harassing of citizens, calling on the police and prosecution service to fortify international cooperation and do everything possible to prevent the further mistreatment of Serbian citizens.
