We condemn portal Dnevno.hr attack against Milanka Opačić, Croatian Parliament vice-president

01.03.2017.

The Croatian Journalists' Association (CJA) condemns portal Dnevno.hr because of publishing photomontage of Ms Milanka Opačić, vice-president of the Croatian Parliament, in „tea-shirt with Chetnik symbols“.

As found by the police investigation, the original photography used to make that photomontage was not one of Ms Milanka Opačić.

That is just one more in series of attacks against persons and groups published by some media that violate ethical code and professional principles.

That kind of publications might provoke hate, even physical attacks, and therefore CJA once more alarms high state officials to condemn that behavior publicly and directly and to underline clearly the difference between media freedom and media dissemination of intolerance and hate.
