Other threats, Zoran Leković, 17.11.2020.


The journalist of the Radio Television of Montenegro, Zoran Leković, submitted a report to the Police Administration of Montenegro for endangering security, insults and exposing to public lynch via social networks.

As he said, this is just a continuation of the campaign started by the Public Service, which broadcast compromising content for journalists in News. This was preceded by Lekovic’s public criticism of the Public Service.

On his Facebook page, Lekovic announced that he had filed a criminal complaint against the Instagram group “niksic.zivi” and V.M., because they “exposed him to a public lynching and brutally attacked his professional and personal integrity and tried to endanger his personal and family security “. As he explained, they took content from his private profile, which they posted again with insults and threats.

Since the media published this, the secretary of the Ministry of Health, Nikola Antović, commented on that newspaper article on one portal. His comment was of a very offensive nature, which is why Lekovic also wrote to the Ministry of Health, which distanced itself from Antovic’s statement.
