Declaration on the violence used against News24 journalists, Ergys Gjençaj and Klodiana Lala

AMC expresses its great concern on the violence exercised by the special forces of the state police against News24 journalists, Ergys Gjençaj and Klodiana Lala. It is inconceivable for a country aiming to integrate into the EU that journalists are treated brutally simply because they are reporting from the scene – which is their mission and job.

The concern becomes even greater when it is seen that this incident can not be considered isolated but is already a continuous attitude of the State Police, which unable to respond to crime, uses the violence towards journalists who are reporting it.

AMC urges the State Police to punish the act and those who committed it, as well as to publicly apologize to the journalists, pledging that such acts shall not be repeated.
