Management rejects claims about worrying situation at HRT

The management board of the HRT public broadcasting corporation on Tuesday denied claims by the head of the Croatian Journalists' Association (HND), Sasa Lekovic, that the situation at the HRT was worrying and that as many as 70 people had been replaced over the last two months.

The HRT management board said that the changes launched in the last two months were aimed at raising professional standards and financially stabilising the public broadcaster.

It said that the HND's statement contained a lot of untruths, noting that only the HRT director-general and the HRT Programme Council director had been relieved of their duties for failure to fulfil their obligations under the law, while most other executives and editors had been relieved at their own request.
