    The Association of Journalists of Kosovo is concerned about a post by the Minister of Interior, Xhelal Sveçla, in which he uses dangerous and unacceptable language towards the media and journalists.

    Minister Sveçla insinuates that the audio recordings of the Head of the Parliamentary Group of his party, Mimoza Kusari Lila, with the former deputy of Srpska, Simic, were given to the Kosovo media by the Serbian president, Vucic.

    According to the minister, journalists Berat Buzhala and Vehbi Kajtazi were involved in organizing the veterans’ protest.

    The use of such language poses a risk to the security of the mentioned journalists and is seen as a component of the government’s continuous effort to intimidate the media.
