The report written by journalist Thomas Saintourens presented data collected by Ossigeno and interviews with Marilena Natale, Giovanni Tizian, Daniele Piervincenzi and Alberto Spampinato
“In Italy, after having received threats from the mafia, nineteen journalists have been given round-the-clock protection. This is a growing phenomenon, especially after a clan of the ‘Ndrangheta appears to be the main suspect behind the killing of the Slovakian journalist Jan Kuciak and his girlfriend”. This is the headline of the article by Thomas Saintourens that Le Monde published on 12 March 2018 about threats to journalists in Italy. The article refers to data and analysis produced by Ossigeno per l’Informazione that is described as “the national reference point for the safety of journalists”. Interviews with journalists Marilena Natale, Giovanni Tizian, Daniele Piervincenzi and Alberto Spampinato are also included.
