Between July 7 and 11, 2020, 28 journalists and media workers have been attacked by demonstrators and police officers during demonstrations across Serbia. PEN International joins the Media Freedom Rapid Response (MFRR) consortium and other free expression and media freedom organizations in calling for all attacks and threats to journalists to be investigated fully to ensure that perpetrators of violence, including police officers and other state entities, are held to account.

This open letter (English – Serbian) was sent to the Minister of Interior of the Republic of Serbia, Dr. Nebojša Stefanović.
