  • The Minister of Information Karliukevich Promised to Invite BAJ to Discuss Amendments to Mass Media Law

    The Ministry of Information would like to arrange public hearings on the planned changes in the Belarus Law ‘On Mass Media’. Among other, the Minister of Information Aliaksandr Karliukevich noted in his interview to the European Radio in Belarus that he wanted to hear arguments in favour of introducing the status of freelance journalists into the law.


    Mr. Kar­liuke­vich didn’t spec­i­fy the scope of the planned amend­ments to the Mass Media law at that.

    The Min­is­ter promised to invite the Belaru­sian Asso­ci­a­tion of Jour­nal­ists to take part in the dis­cus­sion of pro­pos­als of legal changes to be intro­duced into the Belarus law ‘On Mass Media’. Among oth­er, it was empha­sized that the gov­ern­ment would take into con­sid­er­a­tion the pre­sent­ed ideas of legal changes.

    It is worth men­tion­ing that accord­ing to the BAJ mon­i­tor­ing results, the Belaru­sian free­lance jour­nal­ists were fined 69 times for coop­er­a­tion with for­eign mass media in 2017. The total sum of fines amount­ed to EUR 24 235 in equiv­a­lent.
