Freedom of Czech media under scrutiny  

Risk of political abuse of Czech media will be discussed by MEPs and the Commission on Thursday.

The plenary debate is being held in reaction to a leaked audio recording, allegedly catching the leader of the coalition ANO party, the former Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Andrej Babiš, instructing a journalist employed by his media group on how to attack his political rivals.


The matter was discussed on Tuesday by the Parliament's Civil Liberties committee.



Procedure:  Debate with the Commission

2017/2696(RSP)

Debate: Thursday, 1 June
