Chronicles of Threats
OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media/ Commission for the Investigation of Murders of Journalists
Issue 32 | September 2014
In the past 20 years in Serbia, three journalists have been murdered and dozens threatened. None of the cases were resolved. Even after the democratic revolution, the freedom of the press is in danger. While journalists live in fear, murderers lead normal, everyday lives.
The general public is unaware of the dangers which journalists face when they try to uncover the truth of what is happening in Serbia. If they do think about it, the attitude is, 'it's not my job, it's not my problem'.
The challenge was to raise awareness that vested political and business interests were still silencing the voices of journalists.
