Coalition condemns lawsuit against KRIK journalists in Serbia

SERBIA—The Coalition for Women in Journalism (CFWIJ) has strongly condemned a lawsuit filed by Judge Dusanka Dordevic and her husband against Serbian investigative news outlet KRIK. The lawsuit, which claims privacy violations, seeks financial compensation, a two-year ban on journalism for KRIK reporters, and a ten-month prison sentence. This legal action follows KRIK's investigation into Judge Dordevic's work.

CFWIJ has labeled the lawsuit a blatant attempt to stifle media freedom and hinder critical reporting on the Serbian judiciary. The organization has demanded the immediate dismissal of all charges to protect journalistic integrity and uphold the principles of a free press.

In their statement, CFWIJ highlighted the vital role of investigative journalism in holding power to account and ensuring transparency within public institutions. They expressed grave concerns that such legal actions could set a dangerous precedent, discouraging journalists from pursuing important stories out of fear of retaliation.

KRIK, known for its rigorous investigative reporting, has been a crucial voice in uncovering corruption and misconduct within Serbia. The lawsuit against its reporters is seen by many as part of a broader effort to suppress dissenting voices and limit public scrutiny of the judiciary.
