Round table on execution of the decisions of the Commissioner for Information of Public Importance

Belgrade - The Government of Serbia doesn't provide for execution of decisions of the Commissioner for Information of Public Importance, which represents an invitation for breaking the law, and the number of unexecuted decisions of the Commissioner has a constant growth tendency, has been concluded yesterday at the Round Table in  Media Center, where representatives of OSCE and the Ministry of Culture have participated, as well as the Commissioner for Information, Mr. Rodoljub Sabic. The Commissioner  Sabic pointed out that a problem in application of the Law on Free Access to Information does not represent securing execution of the Commissioner's decision, but also of the decision of the Supreme Court of Serbia, and lack of functioning of the Law implementation mechanisms, "because there is no faith in it" and no political will.

Hague Tribunal shall in due time stop its work. It is already a current question how shall in the future information be available from its archives, and where and how these archives are going to be kept? Contents of the archive have huge importance for international community, but for sure the most importance it holds for people, nations and states from ex-SFRY area. For our country and our citizens possibility to have free access to information contained in the archives is also very important. We should try to secure the widest possible preconditions for entitlement to that right. Within that, at least at first sight, it is not illogical and is already attractive, (in)formally launched idea from our side that Belgrade should become a seat of the Archives.

International Journalists' Federation, the biggest world organization with more than half a million members in over a hundred of countries of the world and the European Union of Electronic Media, the greatest association of national broadcasters, have recently, by the end of the last year, sent a letter to the UN Security Council with the requirement to secure respect of the Resolution on Journalists' Safety, passed by the end of 2006. The letter warns that in the last 12 months a huge number of assaults on journalists has been registered, including 173 murders, which is the biggest number until now, and that in the last decade more than 1,000 journalists have been killed. As extremely worrying is stressed that merely 20 percent of perpetrators are brought to justice.
