On the occasion of breaking into a vehicle of daily Dan, used by the co-owner of this media outlet Slavica Jovanović, and theft that occurred on that occasion, Human Rights Action expresses its concern and condemns this latest attack on the media in Montenegro.
Also, we are expecting the competent state prosecutor to inform on the epilogue of expertise of the damage to the car owned by RTCG General Director Rade Vojvodić, which was discovered a month ago, on 29 July 2015.
Montenegro is a country where citizens are unfortunately accustomed to frequent attacks on property and physical integrity of journalists and media. Such attacks generally go unresolved and therefore unpunished, which is also devastating the country’s reputation. We are still hoping for the results of the cooperation of the state prosecution and the police, who are primarily responsible for suppressing attacks on journalists.
In addition, HRA has been continuously advocating for the introduction of new criminal offenses ensuring more strict punishments for attacks on journalists and their property.
