EFJ and IFJ demand the review of Macedonian journalist Kezarovski’s trial

The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), together with the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), have today demanded in a joint letter to Macedonian Prime Minister, Mr. Nicola Gruevski, the review of the Macedonian journalist Tomislav Kezarovsi’s two year jail sentence.

The reporter, sentenced allegedly for revealing the identity of a witness in a murder case, was recently granted release from prison on health grounds until next 18 February, which IFJ and EFJ find insufficient.

By a public letter, they called on the Macedonian authorities to reconsider Kezarovski’s innocence and to grant him the permanent release.
