Commissioner calls on Slovenia’s Prime Minister to ensure that the decision to suspend public funding for the country’s Press Agency be reversed

In a letter published today, the Commissioner calls on Slovenia's Prime Minister, Mr Janez Janša, to ensure that the government’s decision to suspend public funding for the Slovenian Press Agency (STA) be reversed.

"The suspension of public funding may seriously hamper STA's work, possibly even jeopardising its continued operation", said the Commissioner, stressing that the government's decision to stop funding STA appears to be one of the various incidents that point to a worsening of the working environment for journalists and media outlets in the country over recent months.
