IPI condemns attack on SKAI TV in Piraeus
On 28 July 2011, taxi drivers vented their anger against SKAI TV; they gathered in the courtyard of the SKAI building and threw sharp objects, stones and bottles at windows. Some protesters blocked the building entrance and impeded journalists from entering and leaving. SKAI video footage shows how angry taxi drivers broke security cameras in order to prevent recording.
"SEEMO calls for better police protection of media outlets. Piraeus prosecutors should investigate this case thoroughly and find the perpetrators. As for the taxi drivers, I believe that attacks against media do not represent a solution to their demands," said Oliver Vujovic, SEEMO Secretary General.
