Lithuania’s Masked Ball, Media Freedom and Press Intimidation in the Baltic States.
A security services raid (Autumn 2013) on the offices of the Baltic News Service in Vilnius raises troubling questions on the safety of journalistic sources and how to respond to intimidation from the security services or government agents.
A journalist from each Baltic country was asked to write a report on the issue with recent cases. The stories were discussed by the authors in a conference organized by the Baltic Centre for Investigative Journalists in Riga, December 2013.
