Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Bulgaria, Freedom of Speech, Governance, Human Rights, International Relations, Media & Journalism, Politics

Veni Markovski writes [1] about the Bulgarian government's most recent attack on the independent media: “This latest pressure on the free media comes after a number of worrisome cases, involving journalists in the last years. […] Every government in the last 20 years has come to power at the promise of keeping the media free and independent, and every government has stepped down not being able to fulfill its promise.”
