A WARNING

Sofia, 1379, 2‘Arch. Petko Momchilov” Street

DEAR MR PROSECUTOR,

DEAR MR MINISTER,

DEAR KOLLEAGUES AND JOURNALISTS,

It was 5 June 2019 when during honoring their professional obligations, a team from our television was attacked by Georgi Borisov Georgiev, head of the NGO BOETS. The violation was not only to the reporter Plamen Petrov and the driver Tihomir Georgiev, but also to the camera. There were witnesses that the Georgiev was punched in the face. A judicial medical examination proved that so the employees of Kanal 3 lodged a complaint in the police in Vidin.

Dear Mr. Prosecutor, Internal Minister, dear colleagues,

Please, take a side concerning this unprecedented outrage against a journalist while honoring his professional obligations. Three of our colleagues were commissioned to Vidin in order to interview Mr. Georgi Georgiev. Our TV has several signals from different sources against his NGO and we prepair an examination on this basis. Following the rules in journalism, Kanal 3 must give a chance to the injured party to give answers. This is what we tried to do – with our names and brand. However our attempt was manipulated by Georgi Georgiev who pretendet to be a victim and acted in an intolerable way towards our journalists. He did not only offended them, but also tried to put our cameras out of order and eventually stroke at them. He even involved his wife in this scandal while our crew intentionally stayed away from her as she is not an object of our investigation. This is the reason why our attempts to talk to Georgi Georgiev were made only in front of his office. He called the police officers twice in his attempts to threaten us and put our investigation to an end. However the police didn’t find any fouls committed by Kanal 3’s employees.

Here I present to you facts and circumstances and whether they are part of a crime or not – it’s in the competence of the investigative bodies and the Prosecutor’s office. Kanal 3 has enough video which can be presented on demand.

When we talk about freedom of speech and media, I believe it concerns all media, all journalists. We believe it is intolerable to outrage against journalist and I believe the institutions and the media society share our position. Another reason for this complaint is Georgi Georgiev’s attempts to mislead our colleagues who – I believe unintentionally – manipulate people’s opinion and create fake news which we should fight against all together!

Best regards,

Iva Stoyanova
