The Press Day: a farce not a feast

Mircea Toma, director of The Press Monitoring Center – Academia Caţavencu, said that the new Press Day organized by the Professional Journalists' Union would have been a real feast, had the Parliament removed the slander article from the Penal Code and exempted the press from the value-added tax. And if the Police had been more prompt in identifying those that had agressed journalists. Mircea Toma added that there was no need for solemn feasts in a country where journalists’ freedom is seriously jeopardized.
