Attacks on media and political parties do not contribute to the solution of existent political problems

We strongly condemn attack on offices of the TV Pink M and premises of the Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) which took place last night and invite the compenetn state authorities to urgently identify all the  perpetrators and those who mainstreamed this, as well as to undertake the necessary measures in order to adequately punish the actors of these events.

Attacks on media and jeopardizing safety of journalists will not contribute to solution of political problems. On the contrary, in this manner only tensions are created that can be additional obstacle to finding a rational political solutions in the public interest.

Attacks on premises of political parties further polarize the society that is already too much divided.

Dissatisfaction with the editorial policy of media or with the work of a political party can be expressed in many different civilized manners, but never with violence.

All media, political parties and other entities have the right to work in a safe environment if we really want Montenegro to be democratic and organized country.
