European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) President Maja Sever told Belgrade daily Danas that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has built up an image of society and the media which is not democracy.
“His dramatic statements over the past two days show why we are in this horror,” Sever said commenting Vucic’s words that the mass killing suspects won’t see the light of day.
“We have no right to be surprised after Vucic released the medical records of the boy two days ago… I find it unbelievable that he didn’t ask himself for one second if something should be done differently and review his own behavior,” she said.
She encouraged the professionals in Serbian media with high moral and ethical qualities not to give up. “They should continue doing their job as they have and I hope they will be heard,” Sever said.
