Threats against the editorial staff of the portal Periskopi


AJK has been informed by the “Periskopi” portal about a threatening email they received regarding the publication of an article titled “Nine employees of the Faculty of Medicine receive salaries at University Clinical Center of Kosovo (QKUK) without working at all.”

On January 15, an email was sent demanding the removal of the news, stating “journalists, be careful what you write because many of you are going to be beheaded or your relatives will be taken captive.”.

AJK is concerned regarding the threat made against the editors of this portal and urges the Kosovo Police to investigate the base of the threat and take appropriate actions to protect this medium’s journalists. Furthermore, we invite the Prosecutor’s Office and other justice institutions to put in the necessary effort to deal with this case.
