The failure to uphold the free expression is a worrying sign for the future of press freedom in the Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia. This shows the recent dismissal of Journalists from Kanal 5 TV under “vague reasons”.
The journalists who were dismissed have already complained to FYROM’s PM Nikola Gruevski and also to the owner of the Kanal 5 TV, where they express their complains about the censorship of the government.
As a result, FYROM’s dailies will also protest in favour of the dismissed journalists and against Government’s interference with their editorial freedom, using the motto, “Stop the pressure on the media”.
The dismissed Journalists have also informed the international community about the latest events According to infos from FYROM’s Media, up to now, their fellow Kanal 5 TV colleagues have declined to comment the case.
