Threats towards journalist Burim Pacolli


Burim Pacolli, a journalist at Nacionale, has received threats from an individual via the social network Instagram.

The person with the nickname “Edon Edon”, first threatened the journalist through comments, and then on his profile, he posted a story requesting people to find Pacolli’s home location.

In the announcement sent to the Association of Journalists of Kosovo, Pacolli stated that the case had also been reported to the Kosovo Police.

AJK is concerned by the increasing number of online threats against journalists and media outlets, which are easily made by citizens. For AJK, the threat against Pacolli is unacceptable and punishable. Therefore, we urge the Kosovo Police to prioritize the case and take the necessary actions to hold the individual accountable.
