Commissioner Janković denounced abusive speech aimed at a female journalist of Sportski žurnal sports daily newspaper

Brankica Janković, the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality strongly denounced insults made on account of a female journalist of Sportski žurnal sports daily newspaper by Milorad Kosanović, the coach of Napredak football club. „In a severely offensive manner and by employing coarse language perpetuating typical gender stereotypes that women’s place is by the stove not in the so called man’s world of sports, Mr. Kosanović had propounded discriminatory views which are impermissible and are barred by the law. As someone whose profession is closely linked to the world of sports in which spirit of tolerance and equality should prevail, I expect Napredak football club coach to apologize publicly to the female journalist and to take precautions in the future when expressing his views in the public domain,“ said Commissioner Janković.
