PRISTINA 08.08.2018 – The Association of Journalists of Kosovo condemns the used language by Kosovo’s President, Hashim Thaci against journalist Fitim Gashi by saying “I can’t talk on behalf of Vucic, as you are talking sometimes”.

Fitim Gashi was accused after he asked questions related to the recent initiative of President Thaci for correction of the border with Serbia, claiming that Presevo Valley should be returned to Kosovo.

The labelling used by the president against journalist Gashi is unacceptable for the Association of Journalists of Kosovo and constitutes a violation of the professional integrity of the work of journalists and media.

AJK asks President Thaci not to use unfounded charges and labels against journalists and the media they represent. AJK calls on President Thaci to distance himself from such lynching language and to show more restraint in respect of the work of journalists.
