The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) was alarmed to hear that a group of journalists and the founder of B92, Veran Matic, were the targets of threats for several days in Serbia.
Several journalists, as well as B92 founder Veran Matic, received threats from unknown sources. The threats said that the journalists, who work for B92, would be “beaten to death”, while Veran Matic was mentioned in the context of “hanging” in the middle of Terazije, a square in Belgrade.
SEEMO’s press freedom work is supported by the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) project, as part of a grant by the European Commission.
