    SafeJournalists Network has taken note of the arrest of journalist Ervis Hasanaga and the Network is closely following the developments in this case. We are actively inquiring with the relevant authorities to obtain further information before making any detailed response.

    We call upon the authorities to ensure transparency and adherence to due process in handling this matter. While we recognize the need for accountability, we urge against resorting to measures such as arrests of journalists and media workers, which should be proportional and justified.

    Moreover, we emphasize the importance of respecting journalists’ freedom and their critical role in society. It is also crucial that journalists adhere to their ethical code, maintaining integrity and responsibility in their reporting. We will continue to monitor the situation and advocate for a fair and just resolution.
