RWB: violations of media freedom increased since last elections
28/04/2010 11:25:00

Reporters without Borders issued a statement expressing that "RWB is very concerned about the continuing wave of press freedom violations in Iraq and reiterates its appeal to the Iraqi parliament to pass a law protecting journalists."

Many journalists and media have been the target of physical attacks or lawsuits since the 7 March parliamentary elections, the statement added.

The statement continued The threats come from both the security forces and public figures. The context yet again shows the urgent need for the Iraqi parliament to being examining the draft law on the protection of journalists that has repeatedly been postponed since September 2009.

The statement mentioned dozens of violations and attacks against the Iraqi journalists, considering these attacks as negative tendencies.

"According to a survey by the Iraqi press freedom centre Aklam Horra, a quarter of the countrys journalists have left the country because of the US occupation and the Iraqi governments policies and most of them emigrated to Jordan, Syria or Egypt. Those who stayed are constantly exposed to threats," the statement concluded. /End/
