Macedonia. Attacks on journalists: mission of ECPMF
The European Centre for Press and the Media Freedom will send a short-term small fact-finding delegation to Skopje in the last week of April 2017
Investigate on the increasing number of attacks on journalists and on the general situation of media freedom through political-motivated pressure in the Republic of Macedonia: these are the goals of the short-term small fact-finding delegation that the European Centre for Press and the Media Freedom (ECPMF) will send to Skopje between 25th-29th April 2017.
The mission is the response of the Centre to a request from Naser Selmani, president of the Association of Journalists of Macedonia (AJM) and an open letter from the West Balkans Advocacy Platform for Press Freedom and Protection of Journalists.
The delegation will be supported by the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), OBC Transeuropa (OBCT) and the South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO). Also Ossigeno will give its support to the mission.
