first_img Swedish Reporters Without Borders awards press freedom prize to a Hungarian news site News Reporters Without Borders called today on Swedish justice minister Thomas Bodstroem to crack down on neo-Nazi threats against the media after five extreme-rightists smashed the windows of journalist Bjoern Lockstroem’s house in Motala (245 kms southwest of Stockholm) on 19 May. The attackers were arrested at a police roadblock soon afterwards, carrying clubs and teargas grenades. “Lockstroem is known for his probes into illegal behaviour by neo-Nazi groups and has been threatened several times,” said the organisation’s secretary-general, Robert Ménard in a letter to the minister. “We urge you to see that those responsible for such actions are punished and that threats and attacks against the media stop.” News to go further SwedenEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information SwedenEurope – Central Asia May 4, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out morecenter_img April 14, 2021 Find out more Organisation RSF_en News Follow the news on Sweden Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU May 22, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Neo-Nazis attack journalist’s home RSF urges Swedish judicial authorities to reverse Dawit Isaak decision Newslast_img read more
