Pristina, July 12, 2022 – The FOL movement, with the support of “Safe Journalist”, held information sessions on Tuesday regarding the Slapp Lawsuits (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation) with activists and journalists from the Municipality of Peja and Ferizaj.
In this discussion, journalists and activists had the opportunity to be informed about the meaning of Slapp Lawsuits, the level of spread of this phenomenon in our country, as well as how endangered Kosovar journalists and activists are from exercising these lawsuits.
The purpose of this meeting was for journalists to become familiar with Slapp Lawsuits and how to fight these lawsuits, as well as the important role played by journalists and other media actors in a democratic society.
Such discussions with journalists and activists will continue to be held in other municipalities of Kosovo.
This project is funded by the European Union through safejournalists.net.
