The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), together with its regional group the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), have today demanded in a joint letter to Macedonian Prime Minister, Mr. Nicola Gruevski, the review of the national journalist Tomislav Kezarovsi's two year jail sentence.
The reporter, sentenced allegedly for revealing the identity of a witness in a murder case, was recently granted release from prison on health grounds until next 18 February, which IFJ and EFJ find insufficient.
By a public letter, they called on the Macedonian authorities to reconsider Kezarovski's innocence and to grant him the permanent release.

The IFJ represents more than 600 000 journalists in 134 countries
