At the special session of the Prijedor City Assembly, only one agenda item was discussed: the recent statements of the chief imam from Kozarac, Amir Mahić, about Saint Sava and the Serbian Orthodox Church. After several journalist crews arrived at the City Administration building in Prijedor with the intention of following the session, security ordered them to leave the building, explaining that the session was “closed to the public”.
The Steering Committee of BH Journalists Association believes that the city authorities of Prijedor had no argument for not allowing the media to report on the special session of the City Assembly, and that it is a classic attempt of censorship and banning access to information of public interest.
