ANEM Workshop for members: Investigative Journalism – the legal aspects, benefits and risks

The year 2009 was characterized by a series of changes of regulations influencing the work of the media, the most important - amendments to the Law on Public Information and to the Criminal Code. They changed the media legal framework in a restrictive manner, which directly caused a lesser practice of investigative journalism. Journalists are no longer sure which information they are allowed to disclose to the public and that it is not considered as a violation of freedom of information. Also, the self-censorship is evident, recognized by journalists themselves and the media as a result of these amended regulations.

Having in mind the importance of investigative journalism for fulfilling the social role of media and development of society's democratization, but also the fact that it is necessary to know and understand the regulations, rights and obligations arising from them for journalists and media, ANEM organized a workshop for its members on January 27, 2010 in Belgrade.  Workshop organization was supported by Civil Rights Defenders. Guests - workshop panelists were: Brankica Stankovic journalist, RTV B92; Tomo Zoric, spokesman and adviser to the Republic Public Prosecutor's Office; Bruno Vekaric, spokesman for the Office of the War Crimes Prosecutor; Djordje Padejski, CINS journalist and Slobodan Kremenjak, ANEM lawyer from the law office Zivkovic&Samardzic. Thirteen representatives of 12 ANEM stations attended the workshop: Radio CITY from Nis; Radio Luna from Uzice; Radio EMA from Bujanovac; RTV Kragujevac from Kragujevac; RTV Panon from Subotica; Radio Sports Plus from Pirot; RTV Pancevo from Pancevo; TV Jedinstvo from Novi Pazar; Radio Boom 93 from Pozarevac; Radio Ozon from Cacak; RTV Krusevac from Krusevac and TV Valjevo from Valjevo.
