Criminal charges for threats to CINS Editor-in-Chief Milica Šarić on Twitter have been filed with the Special Prosecutor’s Office for High-Tech Crime via the Working Group for the Safety of Journalists. Charges have also been filed with the same Prosecutor’s Office for threats to the CINS office on Facebook.

On December 2 this year, an unidentified person using the Twitter account @Ivanbgd2 wrote in response to a tweet by Milica Šarić: “Mercenary scum…..your end is near, slut!!!!!”

For that reason a lawyer of the Independent Journalists’ Association of Serbia (IJAS), which is part of the Working Group for the Safety of Journalists, filed criminal charges to the Special Prosecutor’s Office for High-Tech Crime. According to the charges, Milica Šarić believes that her entire work as an investigative journalist sparked the threats.

The person behind the aforementioned Twitter account is being charged with the criminal offense of jeopardizing safety or other criminal offense prosecuted ex officio.

On the same day threats were made to Milica Šarić, the office of the Center for Investigative Journalism of Serbia (CINS) received a threat on Facebook from the user martinajurjevic.10. The person behind this account sent the following message: “Stop denying the truth Mr. Nikola Sandulović is speaking. Soroš’s mercenaries, justice will find you and very soon! There are many of us who are awake!”
