Osce. Thanks to Dunja Mijatovic, who concludes her mandate in Vienna
Ossigeno per l’Informazione wishes all the best to the Representative on Freedom of the media who leaves her office after six years
The statement by Alberto Spampinato, Director of Ossigeno per l’Informazione:
I hope that the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the media, who will replace Dunja Mijatovic on March 10, 2016, will have the same courage, the same generosity, the same strong civil passion. On top of the necessary competence, these human qualities are fundamental to raise such important matters in front of representatives of powerful countries who would not even hear about it.
Dunja Mijatovic has had the courage and responsibility to show very serious violations of press freedom that have also occurred in democratic countries like Italy, and which can not be underestimated.
She helped the little Italian observatory “Ossigeno per l’Informazione” make known to the whole world that in Italy the freedom of the press is limited by threats, acts of intimidation, abuses similar to those that occur in authoritarian countries.
As such, Ossigeno per l’Informazione is grateful and would be happy to have her among its honorary members.
