Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, October 2, 2018 – The programming council of the Croatian national broadcaster on Monday convened an emergency session to discuss the situation on Croatian Radio and Television (HRT) following the latest developments, including the dismissal of journalist Hrvoje Zovko, and concluded by a majority vote that the situation on HRT was concerning due to disrespect of journalistic standards and ethical norms as well as the state of media freedoms.

Those members of the council who voted for the conclusion also expressed their dissatisfaction with the decision of the council president not to invite representatives of the Croatian Journalists’ Association to this urgent meeting.

“In this way, the emergency meeting lost its original purpose,” the conclusion reads.

The council chairman, Zdravko Kedžo, did not attend today’s meeting.

The council says that it has been warning for some time about a series of violations of programming principles and obligations on HRT.
