Attack on investigative reporter in Montenegro prompts concern

Montenegrin Investigative Reporter Shot, Wounded

Also on Wednesday, the Montenegrin media associations and the media's self-regulation body said that "Attacks on journalists in Montenegro will not stop until those responsible in this country do not understand that last night's shots (Tuesday, May 8) at Lakić were shots at all of us".

Her editor, Mihajlo Jovovic, of the influential daily Vijesti, said Lakic was approached by a man outside her home in Podgorica late on May 8 and "shot in the leg, while she saw two other men running away".

According to the newspaper report, Lakic's life is out of danger. "Numerous materials, which she wrote, pointing to the crimes, and not investigating", - said the chief editor of Vijesti Mihailo Jovovich.

According to the Guardian, Lakić was previously attacked six years ago after she wrote a series of articles about alleged opaque dealings over a tobacco factory. How long will this happen in this wonderful country of Montenegro.

"We have a long and disgraceful history of impunity for attacks on journalists in Montenegro". The police promise to do everything possible to catch the attackers.

The other looming debacle is whether a USA pullout from the Iran deal could trigger a nuclear arms race. Members of Iranian parliament struck a similar tone, burning a US flag and chanting "death to America".

The assault, the second against a journalist in a month, prompted concern.

Prime minister Duško Marković condemned the attack and urged a "swift and efficient investigation" to discover the motive as well as who might have ordered it. Last month a bomb exploded near the home of a prominent journalist in the northern town of Bijelo Polje.

Union ambassador to Montenegro Aivo Orav wrote on Twitter. "If it remains unsolved, journalists should seriously consider alternative ways of protecting their lives and professional integrity", stated Marijana Camovic, TUMM president, concluding that "The state of Montenegro must not be a synonym for a place where the free word is threatened by bullets".

"I assure you that the government, the ministry and I personally remain committed to protecting the freedom of the media and the safety of journalists as one of the most important values of any democratic society", Nuhodzic added.

- In 2014 she received threats from persons close to the man who attacked her in 2012.
