AJK strongly condemns the threats towards Radio Television of Kosovo

PRISTINA, 05.09.2020 – Association of Journalists of Kosovo has accepted with concern the news of threats by unknown persons towards Radio Television of Kosovo. 

The case was confirmed to the media by the spokesman of Kosovo Police, Daut Hoxha, in which case he stated that the necessary actions have been taken regarding the case. 

“Immediately the competent police units have taken the necessary professional actions to handle such information and are working to clarify all the circumstances and facts related to this report”, said Hoxha. 

Such threats for AJK are completely unacceptable, so we call on the competent authorities to deal with this case as soon as possible so that the intimidators are brought to justice. 

Threats and hate speech have serious consequences in the climate of journalism in Kosovo. Therefore, AJK estimates that only by condemning the intimidators will demonstrate that such behavior is not acceptable in a democratic society.
