Public broadcaster organisation the EBU has expressed concern after protestors broke into the headquarters of Serbian pubcaster RTS in Belgrade on Saturday and demanded to be allowed to make a public address live on air.
“We strongly oppose acts of violent intimidation against media organisations and call on all parties in Serbia to engage in a constructive and inclusive dialogue that supports the independence and pluralism of the country’s national public service media,” the EBU said.
A group of individuals protesting against president Aleksander Vucic’s government, including opposition politician Dragan Djilas and far-right movement leader Bosko Obradovic, reportedly stormed the pubcaster’s HQ and demanded to be allowed to speak on air.
Serbian riot police were deployed to remove the demonstrators.
The country has been rocked by regular political protests against the Vucic government for a the last few months.
