Prishtina, June 9, 2022 – The FOL movement with the support of “Safe Journalists” held on Thursday, June 9, the discussion “FOL Open” with journalists and activists of the Municipality of Prizren.
In this discussion, journalists and activists had the opportunity to be informed about the meaning of SLAPP lawsuits, the level of prevalence of this phenomenon in our country, as well as how endangered Kosovar journalists and activists are from the exercise of these lawsuits.
