Modiga internationella grävare om sina avslöjanden

EyeOnCorruption 5I Serbien är det inte ovanligt att gangsterligor bemöter granskning i media genom att "beställa" reportage i konkurrerade medier. Med falska uppgifter misstänkliggör avslöjandet och avslöjarna.

Att statsmakt och politiker styr medierna i många länder, förföljer journalister och kväver kritisk rapportering är inget nytt. Men det tar i magtrakten höra Stevan från Belgrad berätta om hur det kan gå till i Serbien.

Stevan var en av de drygt 20-talet grävande journalister från Afrika, Mellanöstern och östra Europa som träffades i Kalmar i början av november, inbjudna av Fojo och Eye on Corruption. Temat var hur man avslöjar korruption med journalistiska metoder.
