AJK calls on the Kosovo Police Inspectorate to urgently investigate the brutality against members of the media


New footage and photographs show unprecedented brutality faced by journalists, photographers, and other media workers during today’s protest organised by the Social Democratic Party – PSD.

In one of the videos, it can be seen how the camera operator of Voice of America, Bujar Sylejmani, is forcefully pushed while doing his job.

Faced with this unprecedented violence against media workers, the Association of Journalists of Kosovo calls on the Kosovo Police Inspectorate to promptly investigate all members of the Kosovo Police who have exceeded their competencies by obstructing the work of our colleagues.

AJK calls on the Kosovo Police to show professionalism in dealing with such situations and not to target journalists and camera operators in any way, allowing them to do their work in informing the public unhindered.
