Other threaths to journalists, Ajdin Kamber, Bihac, 06.11.2019.


On November, 6th Ajdin Kamber, freelancer and Deutsche Welle correspondent tried to gain access to Una-Sana Canton Prime Minister Mustafa Ruznic at the Government building. Kamber wanted to arrange an interview about the migrant crisis in USK with Ruznic directly, since he had not received e-mail response days earlier. A plain clothes police officer requested identification documents from Kamber disputing his journalistic accreditation and eventually informed him that the PM Ruznic “had no time for an interview.” The journalist has duly showed his ID and accreditation as requested.
After ten minutes of persuasion and an attempt to force Kamber out of the Government building, the Prime Minister Ruznic personally took the journalist out, without explanation regarding his refusal for interview.
