Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- European Commission Deputy Minister of Values and Transparency Věra Jourová announced that they are drafting a bill to provide greater protection to the press in Europe and to ensure that press employees can do their jobs.

Jourová stated that the European Union (EU) should accept the special duty of the press as one of the foundations of democracy and that the EU should draft freedom of the press law for this purpose.

Jourová, speaking on the cover of World Press Day, said harassment of journalists in every environment and baseless legal cases filed only by powerful economic actors to silence press employees are on the rise.

Jourová said they are drafting a bill to provide greater protection to the press and to ensure that press workers in Europe can do their jobs free from unwanted and undesirable pressures.
