Condemnation of the attack against the “Charlie Hebdo” Magazine

Skopje, 08.01.2015 –The Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services most harshly condemns the attack against the French satirical paper “Charlie Hebdo”, which killed at least 12 persons.

This represents direct attack on the media and the freedom of speech. Freedom of expression and tolerance are the foundations of modern pluralist democracy and no disagreement or difference in views can be used as justification for an attack as this one against “Charlie Hebdo”.

The only weapon allowed in journalism is the pen and it should be used without any fear – without fear for one’s own life especially.
