The Association of Journalists of Kosovo is extremely concerned by reports that the camera operator for the Lajmi.net portal was physically assaulted while filming KRU Prishtina’s move to disconnect debtors from the Shtime water supply network.
In the filmed incident, a person criticizes and insults the journalists who went to cover the event, while Kosovo police officers move him and command him not to use such language.
“During the recording, our cameraman was pushed in the presence of the Kosovo Police. He even attempted to take the microphone away from the journalist covering the event, Zgjim Sefa“, reported the editorial staff of Lajmi.net.
The Association of Kosovo Journalists calls on Kosovo Police to investigate this case so that the media can continue to operate unhindered.
