Radio Racyja denied accreditation
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs denied accreditation to Radio Racyja, an independent radio channel financed by the Polish MFA. In a conversation at the Belarusian MFA, the journalists were informed they could work without accreditation as they had worked before.
In early January 2009, one of Radio Racyja’s journalists was denied accreditation for similar reasons.
Representatives of the radio channel say both decisions must have been made simultaneously.
