Protecting journalists’ sources

Posted on

The protection of the journalists’ sources is largely weak in Kosovo. To further discuss this issue the “Rubikon” TV programme invited representatives from the Democratic Party of Kosovo, Vetevendosje, media outlets and BIRN. The representative of BIRN was Flutura Kusari.

Considering the difficulties that journalists face because of the absence of the law of protecting the sources of information, BIRN together with ARTICLE 19, a London-based human rights organization, drafted a law that will serve as a protection for these sources.

The draft law was sent to the parliament and BIRN publically asked MPs to adopt the law since it is crucial for freedom of speech and expression.
