Burim Pacolli, a journalist at Nacionale, has received threats from an individual via the social network Instagram.

The person with the nickname "Edon Edon", first threatened the journalist through comments, and then on his profile, he posted a story requesting people to find Pacolli's home location.

In the email sent to the Association of Journalists of Kosovo, Pacolli stated that the case had also been reported to the Kosovo Police.
