What is the right question? Protest in front of the Prime Minister's Office after Rama sent another journalist for re-education
The repetition of the "Ambrosia" case by Prime Minister Rama has revolted the community of journalists who have decided to protest today for free speech. Journalists supported by their associations as well as activists and representatives of civil society today showed solidarity with the journalist of "A2CNN", Klevin Muka, who was the next envoy for re-education at the last media conference by the Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Olta Xhaçka.
With the slogan: "What is the right question?" and with different banners in their hands, the journalists asked the Prime Minister to put an end to such methods against the independent media.
Some of them had also closed their mouths as a symbolic sign.
"The government and the prime minister are making it clear that they have no intention of withdrawing from their hostile stance towards the media. The latest case of colleague Muka is not the first case. The same thing happened before with Ambrozia Meta. But the issue is not about specific names, it is bigger than that, because we are in the conditions of a serious violation of the freedom of the media and free speech, and this was confirmed a few minutes ago by dozens of media organizations that have support our protest, said one of the journalists.
A few days ago, journalist Klevin Muka asked the "wrong" question to Minister Olta Xhaçka, who was next to Prime Minister Edi Rama during the joint press conference.
Muka asked the minister about the ethical code approved by the Council of Ministers where cabinet members are not allowed to meet with businessmen without the presence of two state officials, while the minister's husband has been declared a strategic investor.
But Prime Minister Rama preceded this question with the answer, telling the "A2CNN" journalist that he would send him to the re-education process for 3 months, which means that he will not have access for 3 months to participate in the Prime Minister's Conferences.
