Council of Media Ethics found 9 Metamorphosis Foundation’s complaints justified

на 7. 04. 2017 | |
Yesterday, 6 April 2017, the Council of Media Ethics made 9 decisions on the same number of complaints lodged by Metamorphosis Foundation, and all of them were found to be justified. The complaints were lodged because the websites kurir.mk, lider.mk, makedonija24.mk, netpress.com.mk, puls24.mk, republika.mk as well as the TV stations Kanal 5, Nova, and Sitel didn’t publish a denial regarding article/TV story published by these media.

It is unclear what or whom this group represents, who is behind such name, having in mind the fact that same three persons always speak

Global Voices Community Stands With Moroccan Free Expression Advocates

на 19. 11. 2015 | | mk, sq

Posted 18 November 2015 7:15 GMT The Global Voices community demands justice for seven free expression advocates who are facing trial in Morocco due to their advocacy.

Five have been charged with “threatening the internal security of the State” and two face charges of “receiving foreign funding without notifying the General Secretariat of the government.” We call on the Moroccan government to stand by its commitments to international human rights agreements and drop all charges against these seven individuals.
