Association Urges Journalists to Boycott Zagreb Mayor Bandić after Sexist Outburst

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, August 30, 2019 – The Croatian Journalists Association (HND) on Thursday asked Zagreb mayor Milan Bandić to apologise for a sexist attack on N1 Television reporter Matea Dominiković, calling on journalists and editors to boycott Bandić’s public appearances.

The HND strongly condemned Bandić’s latest sexist outburst and joined journalists in their request that he apologise.

The HND said that with his latest comments, Bandić, who is also the president of the BM 365 Work and Solidarity Party, did not want to humiliate only Dominiković but journalists in general, and that this was not his first shameful outburst before the press, especially women journalists.

On Tuesday, Dominiković was asking Bandić about Zagreb’s zoning plan and other topics and his response was: “You again. You nag. If only you knew how you excite me, how you delight me, how you entertain me.”

The response has been strongly condemned by the city’s Gender Equality Commission and Gender Equality Ombudswoman Višnja Ljubičić, who called it sexual harassment.
