Re: BBC: Documents tarnish Montenegro's EU bid

BBC Refuses to apologize to Montenegro for calling it Mafia State      
Thursday, 07 June 2012


BBC's Management has refused to apologize for calling the small Balkan nation of Montenegro a "Mafia State".


Although the Montenegro Embassy in London had sent a protest letter to the BBC, the UK broadcasting station belives its journalists have not broken any rules and are strongly adhering to their professional codex.


The BBC in a scathing article published a month ago, named about a dozen countries that it considered to be Mafia states. Montenegro and Bulgaria from the Balkans were among them.
