The newsroom of the information portal “Plusinfo”, a media which is against the government and which has increased its criticism recently, has been attacked during the weekend by unknown people.

The newsroom of this media has been vandalized and equipment such as laptops and photo cameras have been stolen.

Journalist Elena Gerovska has been the last one to leave the newsroom on Saturday evening, following the ceremony of the opening of the new headquarters of VMRO-DPMNE in the center of Skopje.

“On Sunday morning, she went at the newsroom at around 9 am and noticed that people had broken in the newsroom. Police was immediately informed. We want this vandal act to be investigated, because we consider an attempt to intimidate our journalists”, said the head of the board of this media. /ibna/
