Ombudspersons Are Compiling a Report on Journalists

The state Ombudspersons are compiling a report on press freedoms and threats against journalists in Bosnia. The report was recommended by the Council of Ministers as part of an action plan for the implementation of priorities set in the European Commission’s 2015 progress report on Bosnia.

The report will focus on the legal status of journalists and an analysis of the effectiveness of existing institutional mechanisms, the methods of their operation and their accessibility.

The Ombudspersons said they will quiz journalists about issues relevant to their employment status, work rights and obligations, safety in performing tasks, freedom of expression, protection against discrimination, etc.
