Free Press Unlimited (FPU), in collaboration with the Legal Advisor of the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF), Flutura Kusari, has donated protective equipment to the Association of Journalists of Kosovo (AJK) for journalists while reporting for the field where their physical safety is at risk.

The first part of this donation, which includes 14 ballistic vests, 16 helmets, and 17 first aid kits, was received today by the Executive Director of AJK, Getoarbë Mulliqi Bojaj, and the Legal Advisor of ECPMF, Flutura Kusari.

The second part of this equipment is expected to arrive within the month.

The distribution of protective gear for media outlets will take into account the levels of risk in the country. Furthermore, in coordination with ECPMF and FPU, the Association of Journalists of Kosovo will distribute vests with the inscription “PRESS” to central and local media outlets reporting from the northern part of the country.
