Owners Called To Pay Journalists After New Croatian Daily Closes Doors

The Croatian Journalists’ Association (HND) have called on the owners of failed newspaper “21.Stoljece” to pay its writers for work done after the paper ceased production last week.

A Gangnam style flash mob on Zagreb’s main square helped launch the new daily newspaper 21.Stoljece, published by company Miran dan, in late November.

“Different than the rest, with a wide variety of themes, from politics, economy to social. Besides that we will deal with topics in a different way. We will give background to every news, from a view-point of our values, the people and ordinary family values,” said the newspaper’s editor at the time of the launch, but the daily failed to live up to expectations in Croatia.

“The paper, in two and a half months of being published, failed to meet expectations with its quality, and the consequences are especially troubling for the journalists who are losing their jobs, and with it the uncertainty of how they will pay their unpaid debts, HND stated. Croatian radio television reports that 21.Stoljece had 49 full-time journalists’ and media workers, and around 30 regular freelancers.

HND expressed regret at the failure of the entire project, but says that the project was obviously ill-prepared.
