Euractiv: Czech public broadcaster’s independence threatened ahead of elections

In our Café Evropa debate, Věra Jourová, Vice-President of the European Commission, stated that she is worried about Czech Television. The Brussels portal Euractiv subsequently informed about the situation around the television, whose independence is in jeopardy. The article also informs about the possibility of replacing the director of Czech Television, Petr Dvořák, before the October parliamentary elections.

The full article is available in English here. The debate on the rule of law in the EU is available in Czech as a podcast and as a record on the Facebook event.

You can find out more about the Café Evropa project on the official website.
