MDF calls upon IPN and other media outlets not to circulate materials relating to the private life

On March 11, the secret video recordings depicting the private life of one of the politician was disseminated through the social network.

At 16:11, the news agency IPN published the information in relation to the fact, which enabled to identify that specific person as well as the channel of dissemination.

Media Development Foundation calls on IPN as well as other media outlets, not to circulate materials relating to the private life regardless of how reliable or questionable is the source of such materials. 


P.S The similar material was disseminated by radio Fortuna. It should be mentioned, that the descriptive part of the information disseminated by Radio Fortuna and the news agency IPN was absolutely identical without making reference to the source of information.
