Agency Condemns Verbal Insults Against Telma TV Female Reporter


Skopje, 29 June 2022 – The Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services condemns the inappropriate behavior of the Ohrid Municipality Councilor Nefi Useini against the Telma TV correspondent.

Holders of public offices are subject to public scrutiny and to potentially strong public criticism via the media, which is why they should be aware of their responsibility for every word they say and should refrain from any kind of improper and inappropriate communication.

The Agency has appealed on several occasions so far to allow the journalists to perform their duties professionally, first of all, by taking into account their role in raising issues of public interest and in making sure that the political and public authorities are transparent and accountable.
