Attacks on Journalists Are Absolutely Unacceptable

Skopje, 27 February 2021 – The Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services strongly condemns the attack on the journalists and the obstruction of their work during yesterday’s protests against the verdict on the “Monster” case.

Any form of attack against media workers, whether verbal or physical, as well as any obstruction of their work, is a threat to the freedom of information and the right to know and, as such, is absolutely unacceptable.

The Agency appeals that media workers be provided with free, unhindered and safe access to all events, especially those of public interest.
