Former war crimes reporter attacked in Bosnia and Herzegovina

The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), an affiliate of the International Press Institute (IPI), today expressed concern about a reported physical attack on a former long-time journalist and NGO activist in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Sinan Alic said that an unknown man attacked him at approximately 11 a.m. last Saturday near his weekend home in Trakilovici, close to the town of Tuzla, after stopping him while he was walking his dog and asking him whether he was Sinan Alic.

Alic reportedly suffered head injuries and was hospitalised.

"SEEMO calls on authorities to protect Alic and to find the perpetrators," SEEMO Secretary General Oliver Vujovic said.

Alic, who at one time was active in reporting on war crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina, said that he received threats by SMS in recent months.
