Arbana Xharra Editor-in-Chief, Zeri

Arbana Xharra's reporting contributes to the strengthening of Kosovo's nascent democracy. Her early reporting on religious extremism and its impact on society shed light on a serious problem for Kosovo and the region. Ms. Xharra authored a series of investigative reports on extremists operating in Kosovo and uncovered financial and operational links with foreign terrorist organizations among local imams and NGOs. These efforts not only helped society understand the problem, but also bolstered government efforts to address the problem. Reactions to her reporting resulted in public attacks on her reputation and death threats to her and her family. Undeterred, Ms. Xharra continues to report on malfeasance in public institutions, including cases involving high-ranking officials. As editor-in-chief of one of Kosovo's top daily newspapers, Ms. Xharra is galvanizing a new generation of journalists in search of, and dedicated to uncovering, the truth.

Xharra was also subjected to a 12-day public smear campaign in Infopress in 2009:
On a daily basis Infopress referred to me as a Serbian spy, that somebody needs to punish me, that all Life in Kosovo's reporting was made in Belgrade … that I had shortened my life with this program and that somebody should teach us a lesson, me and my crew. To call someone a "Serbian spy" in Kosovo is really risking that person's well-being.[46]
As a result of the smear campaign, Xharra and others on her staff started receiving threats, mainly via email. Although prosecutions ensued, no one was ever convicted. Xharra told us:
