Macedonia: Human Rights Activist Trajanoski on Trial

Today, at 13:00 CET, the Basic Court Skopje 1 will hold the main session of the trial against human rights activist Zarko Trajanoski, charged with defamation of Milenko Nedelkovski, a pro-government talk show host. Trajanoski is on trial [mk] for using the term “media charlatan” in a statement on the evening news of the ‘deceased’ A1 TV in a discussion about Nedelkovski's ongoing hate speech campaign, including his calls to murder ‘traitorous’ journalists [en, mk].

The latest highlight [mk] by Nedelkovski, a “journalist who acts as a personal friend to the Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski” and proudly declared with impunity that “traitors deserve hate speech,” was using the tragic death of his activist son to publicly insult former A1 editor Aco Kabranov.
