Croatia unveiled a new penal code allowing the prosecution of journalists for reports considered "insulting", even if they are factually correct.

The revised code is intended to take effect 1 January next year and follows international criticism of curbs on the media in the former Yugoslav republic. Lack of media freedom was one of the reasons cited by the Council of Europe when it delayed Croatia's admission for several months last year. - Reuters
