Obstructing the work of media, Mitrovicë Veriore, 31.05.2024

Today, journalists from both Albanian and Serbian language media outlets were not allowed to cover the Municipal Assembly of Northern Mitrovica. This decision reportedly followed the exclusion of a political activist who wanted to speak at the session. Consequently, the journalists were also asked to leave the premises.

AJK condemns this action and emphasizes the importance of transparency in all decisions made by the municipal body for the benefit of the community.

The Municipal Assembly, along with the chairman and the mayor, should ensure that the necessary conditions are in place for the media to follow the works without facing any obstacles.
