In a statement issued on July 12, Dunja Mijatović, the OSCE Representative on Freedom 
of the Media, deplored the physical assault against Halil Matoshi, a 
columnist with the daily Koha Ditore in Pristina.

Matoshi was attacked on the evening of 10 July by three unidentified men when 
leaving a cultural event in Pristina. Matoshi managed to escape and was later 
treated in a hospital. The journalist is known for his investigative 
reporting and criticism against politicians and public officials.

“This attack could have proved fatal to the journalist. I am glad that 
Halil Matoshi managed to fend off his assailants,” Mijatović said. 
“Violence against journalists is an attack against free expression and the 
society as a whole, and I strongly condemn all such acts.”
