The decision of the Assembly to leave out the Committees and the plenary session, journalists consider as an attempt to censor their work.
They have come out today in a protest in front of the plenary hall. They say that this is a decision beyond any logic.
In a statement yesterday, mainly political journalists in the country said that the decision of the Bureau of the Assembly to exclude accredited journalists from the access of parliamentary committees is a clear violation of the work and freedom of the media.
“The call that we as journalists make to the Albanian Parliament is to withdraw from the Assembly. We consider this unfair. Produces censorship. Information should proceed normally.
Colleagues all know. The way journalists are banned from reporting is flagrant. We can point the microphone at our lawmakers, and we are banned. There must be reflection. If this is forbidden to us, what is the job of a journalist? What is the role of the journalist. This decision contradicts our interest and that of the media. We have been present and we know how this thing works, imagine how it will work if we are not present “, stated the journalists at the beginning of the plenary session where Meta’s dismissal is expected.
