THE PRESS COUNCIL IN BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA

PRESS RELEASE

REGARDING THE ATTACK ON THE REDACTION OF MAGAZINE "SLOBODNA BOSNA"

 

The Press Council in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the self-regulatory body for print and online media, strongly condemns the attack on the redaction of magazine "Slobodna Bosna". The arson in the redaction of magazine "Slobodna Bosna" is not only an attack on the member of the Press Council in BiH, but also the attack on the freedom of the press, freedom of speech and freedom of information, as one of the basic grounds of democratic society.

           

The Press Council in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as a self-regulatory body which protects media from political, economic or any other pressures and attacks which endanger the freedom of information, reminds that without free media, there is no free society nor free life for the citizens of the Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Press Council in Bosnia and Herzegovina requires from the police, prosecutor's office and other competent institutions to immediately find the perpetrators of arson at the doors of the redaction of magazine "Slobodna Bosna" and to prosecute them.

                                                                                       

Mr. Dario Novalić

The President of the Board of Directors

Press Council in Bosnia and Herzegovina
