According to national studies on the Freedom of the Press in the Republic of Moldova, Moldovan journalists’ security has dramatically regressed over the last two years. A number of cases prove this situation: more and more often, reporters say they are simply not allowed to do their field work, being assaulted, intimidated or even stalked. Media NGOs have repeatedly called for the authorities to take action, but the public opinion has not been informed yet about the results of any potential investigation. However, how can journalists be protected?

This topic was tackled during a new edition of Media Azi show, featuring Liuba Sevciuc from RISE Moldova and lawyer Tatiana Puiu, representative of Freedom House in Moldova.
