The Press Council Complaints Commission ruled that a number of media outlets violated the Serbian Journalists’ Code in their coverage of the two mass shootings early in May, the Serbian Journalists Association (UNS) said.

The media that violated the Code include the pro-regime tabloids Informer, Večernje novosti, Alo, Kurir, the Blic tabloid and their portals as well as the Glas Javnosti and Nova portals, the press release said.

It added that the violations were made in coverage of the mass shootings in a Belgrade elementary school and two villages outside Mladenovac as well as in coverage of other unrelated stories.
