Serbia: The Fight for Truth

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Brankica Stankovic is the editor and journalist on one of the most well-known documentary programs, the “Insider” on the TV-station B92

For five years she has been under constant police protection because she does her job as a critical investigative journalist. She refuses to bow to threats from assassins, ultra-nationalists, neo-Nazis and criminal networks based in hooligan movements.

Brankica Stankovic and her colleagues have also investigated the mafia in the construction industry, dubious real estate and money laundering in overseas tax havens.

Since 2009, when the program "Insider", brought several programs about how hooligans from the ultra-nationalist football clubs Partizan and Red Star also had numerous convictions for assault, vandalism, extortion and murder, Brankica Stankovic have been protected by special forces from the Serbian anti-terrorist corps.

Around the clock, there are heavily armed police around her and her young daughter, Sara.

 Written and directed by Tom Heinemann

Produced by Borgen & Heinemann (2015)
