Zhupa issues the order: How Margariti tries to silence the artists with

Democratic MP Ina Zhupa has published an order signed by the Minister of Culture Elva Margariti, ordering artists to obtain permission before appearing in the media.

In the letter posted on Facebook by Zhupa, it is stated that "in the case when the employees do not notify, they make negative publicity and damage the image of the institution, and will be proceeded according to the provisions of the Internal Regulation of the Institution.

Zhupa writes that the government is trying to silence artists with communist methods.

""The silencing of artists according to the communist methods of Article 55 for propaganda agitation is the next scandal of the Ministry of Culture. A flagrant violation of the constitution and the labor code.

An illegal and unconstitutional order forces opera and ballet artists of the popular ensemble to obtain permission to give their opinions and express themselves freely. Freedom of expression is guaranteed by the constitution (Article 22) and there is no order from above that can destroy the rights acquired with blood.

Being an artist is above all a free, independent person! These stale documents are an expression of the fear that mismanagement and affairs can be freely discussed on portals, media and other mediums," writes Zhupa.
