PETITION TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

The present petition relates to matters concerning the alleged infringement of the independence from political influence of the state broadcaster Hrvatska Radiotelevizija (HRT) in the Republic of Croatia.

The petitioners submit that by failing to secure the independence of HRT the Republic of Croatia is in breach of its obligations under Article 11(2) of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

The European Parliament is requested to investigate the complaint detailed herein and, insofar as it considers the matter to warrant further action, to inform the European Commission accordingly and to prevail upon the Commission to exert its influence on the Government of the Republic of Croatia to take appropriate remedial action.
