Representative for media freedom at OSCE Dunja Mijatovik today called for an urgent investigation for the wiretapping of journalists in Macedonia, reports “Nova TV”.
– Eavesdropping and surveillance of journalists is unacceptable. This further weakens the already fragile press freedom in the country – said Mijatovik.
She is informed that on 25th of February, several journalists received folders from the wiretaps.
– This is a serious and disproportionate infringement of the rights of journalists to do their jobs and protect their sources. Such actions must be investigated promptly and transparently, and the perpetrators must face justice – concludes the representative of OSCE.
