While the Parliamentary Commissions will start discussing the draft-law for online media, the representative of the Media Freedom at the OSCE, Harlem Desir, said that the draft must be amended.

“No law article can be interpreted in such a way to guarantee that there will be no censorship. This law is interpreted in full accordance with the principles of the European Convention for Human Rights, as implemented at the European Court of Human Rights”, Desir declared.

He adds that based on the legal amend, several additional modifications are needed in order to avoid measures that could limit the media freedom, or that could impose unfair sanctions on electronic media outlets.
