    The Government supports the work of the Media Commission and is ready to meet all its recommendations within the government’s remit and in accordance with the law, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Justice Zoran Pažin told a press conference following the Cabinet session.

    “In particular, I emphasise that the Government shares the Media Commission’s concern regarding the cases threatened with obsolescence in some future period. As a society, we must not be indifferent to this fact and we have to make sure that the authorities have done everything in their power to fully investigate each case individually,” said Deputy Prime Minister Pažin.

    He stressed that at today’s session the Government adopted conclusions recommending the Supreme State Prosecutor’s Office to intensify its activities and review the efficiency and effectiveness of all investigations and attacks on journalists and property of the media within 30 days.

    DPM Pažin stated that the Government tasked the Police Authority to review the conduct of police officers in the investigation of attacks on journalists and property of the media based on of the findings of the Media Commission’s report and determine whether there were any omissions in their work and inform the Government about this within 30 days.
