Free Muslim: Many journalists around the world complain of harassment and targeting


On the World Press Freedom Day, the International Nonviolence Organization, Free Muslim, called on political governments around the world, especially in the Middle East, to reconsider some of the repressive laws and measures that impede the freedom and movement of workers in the press.
In a statement received by Shia Waves Agency, the organization stated, “The press occupies the most effective humanitarian field, due to its pivotal role in human rights issues, affairs and details that are important in the progressive human development, and it has become one of the most important practical facilities influencing human life in our time.”
It added, “The press has contributed to the disclosure and fairness of many sensitive issues and problems at various levels, whether political, social or environmental, and if it were not for the free press, the right of the international community would have grave damage and catastrophic results.”
“While the international community commemorates the World Press Freedom Day, which was adopted by the United Nations on the third of May of every year, as a reminder of the importance of journalism, the organization takes this opportunity to call on political governments around the world, especially in the Middle East region, to reconsider some of the repressive measures and laws that hinder the freedom and movement of workers in the press,” the statement said.
“Many journalists around the world complain of harassment, skepticism, and direct and indirect targeting by political regimes and organizations.”
The statement indicated, “This matter without any doubt leads the organization to demand an end to these violations and to punish those behind them,” stressing the need to release those who were imprisoned for carrying out their peaceful tasks aimed at uncovering the facts in front of public opinion.
