IFJ and EFJ together demand the review of Macedonian journalist Kezarovski's trial

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
