OSCE: There Is No Pluralism In Belarusian Mass Media

Posted by Info on 28/10/2010

OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, Dunja Mijatovic, called upon the authorities of Belarus to cease the interference into the media sphere.

It is not a secret, that there is no pluralism in the Belarusian mass media at all. It is limited to print media, and remains under threat in the Internet. I called upon the representatives of the authority to remove all administrative restrictions on Belarusian media, announced to my official interlocutors that a practice of issuing cautions to newspapers up to their closure paralyses the press activity”.

Dunja Mijatovic says, there are no signs of democracy in Belarus in the sphere of media. The confirmation – a broad practice of impleading of journalists, who to the view of the authorities, “abuse” their powers.
