Legal Advisor Gives Journalists Primer on Document Access

Posted on

BIRN Kosovo legal advisor, Flutura Kusari, attended a roundtable in Gjakova titled “Ethics and Professionalism in Media” on June 26.

Kusari discussed how access to public documents remains a challenge in Kosovo. Public institutions often do not disclose sensitive documents out of the fear they will reveal wrongdoings, she said.

Kusari focused on raising awareness among journalists from Gjakova and Peja on the importance of getting the access to public documents and how to file official requests. The event was organised by Kosovo Press Council.
