Association of Journalists of Kosovo is alarmed over the threats towards our colleagues of Gazeta Sinjali.
Journalists of the news website have been threatened by killing and insulted by relatives of the people who were arrested yesterday by Kosovo Police suspected over plots to carry a terrorist attack in Kosovo.
AJK finds it extremely disturbing and completely unacceptable that journalists continue to be target of such threats. Therefore, we call upon the competent authorities to protect the journalists and this online news media in order to prevent any eventual incident.
We believe that such threats seriously endanger freedom of expression and the climate of doing journalism. We also call on our colleagues to report such cases of threats to Kosovo Police.
