    The team of Television “Vijesti” on Thursday, March 14th, was prevented from broadcasting from the Tološka forest in Podgorica. The security member prohibited the team from conducting the broadcast on the morning program “Boje jutra” under the pretext that it was only allowed for the private Television “E”.

    The adaptation of that part of the forest into a trim track and outdoor gym was funded by the Podgorica-based company “Bemax”, which is publicly associated with Television “E”.

    The Basic State Prosecutor’s Office in Podgorica has initiated proceedings in this regard.
