CJA wrote to the Croatian EMPs because of the threat to media freedom

Dear respected Croatian representatives in the EU Parliament,

Although all of you have been elected as candidates of different political parties and you have various points of view, I am certain that your commitment to compliance of human rights and Constitution of the Republic of Croatia is genuine as well as respect for basic guidelines of EU policy regarding freedom of expression and importance of media independency for development of democratic society. Unfortunately, in our country both freedom of expression and independency of media are endangered and the situation threatens to become worse as we have already seen in some EU countries.

"A media scene of intolerance, indifference and sensitive media frivolities“

The media scene is largely a reflection of the political interests dominating a country. Consequently, the influence of civilized media and civil society organizations will remain marginal; if institutional politics does not stem the tide of hate speech, a mass revision of Antifascist history, extolling the Ustaša regime and stigmatization of Serbs and other minorities, it is hard to expect that anyone will.
