BHJA Journalists Club Banja Luka strongly condemns such practices of media RTRS and SRNA, because it puts at risk not only the persons mentioned in such texts, but also journalists in general because they create an atmosphere of distrust and intolerance towards media and journalists, including the employees of RTRS and SRNA,
BHJA Journalists Club Banja Luka says that it is the duty and obligation of all media, especially public services to respect professional and ethical codes and to work in the public interest primarily.
