AJM contacted the journalist of TV 21 Afrim Jonuzi and he told us by phone: “After the press conference, I wanted to record inserts with the camera that will be used to make a news report and then the person Sherijat Shaqiri stopped me in my work, “he told me that I am not allowed to record, who I was to record, etc.,” said Jonuzi.
