Press freedom at risk in Estonia

The U.S. Embassy in Romania issued a statement on the World Press Freedom Day, marked on May 3, in which it stressed its support for the free press and the freedom of expression, while also expressing its “solidarity with responsible and brave Romanian reporters who resist pressures and threats.”

Estonia’s days as one of the best places in the word to be a journalist could be over. Over the past seven days two renowned Estonian journalists have resigned from their posts.

“Under the pretext of journalistic tone and style, two top journalists who cannot be faulted for their professional skills and capacity for work have been forced to leave their jobs,” explains Lauri Hussar, former editor-in-chief of Postimees and the leading candidate of the Estonia 200 party in the upcoming European parliamentary elections.
