The Serbian Ministry of Culture and Information has condemned frequent attacks on journalists and media, calling for all actors on the public scene to “refrain from exerting pressure, issuing threats and imperilling the safety of journalists and newsrooms, regardless of their editorial orientation.”
The ministry singled out in particular cases of intimidation, threats and branding as fake news related to the work of Insajder production editor Brankica Stanković, TV N1 journalists Jelena Zorić and Nataša Kovačev, and editor of Valjevo-based portal kolubarske.rs Darija Ranković.
Prior to this formal statement, organisation Reporters Without Borders responded to attacks on journalists by assessing that freedom of information is endangered in Serbia and calling for the Serbian state to react to such cases in an adequate manner.
