HNIP (Hrvatski novinari i publicisti) prijavio je Vijeću Europe i OSCE-u Mirjanu Rakić, predsjednicu Vijeća i ravnateljicu Agencije za elektroničke medije, zbog kršenja slobode medija u povodu zabrane emitiranja televiziji Z1 u slučaju Marka Juriča.
U otvorenom pismu OSCE-u tvrde da je odluka Mirjane Rakić, ‘prorežimske novinarke iz vremena komunističke Jugoslavije’, diskriminatornog i totalitarnog karaktera, prenosi Večernji list
Odluka je, tvrde, “ozbiljan napad na slobodu medija i slobodu izražavanja, koja je svojom jačinom i neproporcionalnošću potaknula praksu cenzure i autocenzure koja podsjeća na komunističku totalitarnu kontrolu nad tiskom i potiskivanjem slobode izražavanja u bivšoj Jugoslaviji”.

We request your high benevolence to consider our our anxiety as to the future of freedom of the media in Croatia and to make your possible to examine the well-founded this decision.[/box]
