Group for journalists’ safety in Serbia resumes work

BELGRADE, 24.10.2018. – The permanent group for journalists’ safety resumed its work on Wednesday after the journalist associations’ representatives who earlier withdrew from the group decided to end the boycott, the Beta news agency reported.

Nedim Sejdinovic, the president of the Independent Society of Vojvodina’s Journalists, told the agency that the group discussed the ways of overcoming the problems that led to the boycott.

He added that the group adopted the Action Plan for its work with precise time framework for the work to be done.

“I hope that the authorities and associations involved in the group will successfully carry out the job,” Sejdinovic said, adding they faced a serious work on protecting the journalists.

Independent journalists in Serbia have been at odds with the authorities over freedom of expression, and the group is a joint attempt to overcome the differences.
