Zana Cimili, an N1 reporter from Pristina, received severe menace on social networks to her and her family’s physical integrity, the Beta news agency reported late on Thursday.
N1 Kosovo correspondent receives threats
The person who made the threats said it had “a life desire to kill an Albanian, even an Albanian child,” adding it hoped “for a new war in Kosovo during which the Albanians will feel Serbian rage.”
N1 sharply condemns this outrageous hate speech and risk to N1 reporter who does her job professionally and responsibly.
The threats to Zana Cimili, as to other N1 journalists are not only threats to the individual reporters but also the freedom of speech and media as the fundamental democratic rights.
N1 expects the police and respective prosecutors’ offices in Belgrade and Pristina to investigate as soon as possible who is behind these dangerous messages and where they come from.
