Attack on SITEL TV condemned


Skopje, 07.05.2016 – The Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services condemns most strongly the attack on Sitel TV by participants in what is called the Colourful Revolution, which took place yesterday evening.

The right to protest is guaranteed constitutionally, nevertheless, the right to free reception and transmission of information is a fundamental premise of a democratic society. The above act is a direct attack against the freedom of the media, one more in the line of attacks since the start of these protests.

No disagreement or diverse viewpoint can serve as justification to attack. Due to this, we are appealing once more not to hinder the work of the media and media professionals.
