first_img Middle East – North Africa June 8, 2021 Find out more November 22, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 International Day to End Impunity – ten faces to remember Organisation To mark International Day to End Impunity, which is being celebrated for the third year running on 23 November, Reporters Without Borders is publishing 10 portraits of journalists and bloggers whose murders have not been solved or have not led to the conviction of their perpetrators and instigators. News RSF_en Acts of violence against journalists and other news providers are attacks not only on the victims themselves but also on freedom of expression, the right to inform and its corollary, the right to receive information. In the vast majority of cases, physical attacks on journalists and murders of journalist go completely unpunished.Around 700 journalists have been killed in connection with their work in the past 10 years. In its 2012 annual round-up, Reporters Without Borders condemned last year’s carnage of news providers, in which a total of 88 journalists and 47 citizen-journalists were killed.This is devastating. The impunity enjoyed by those responsible for this bloodshed encourages them to continue violating human rights and freedom of information. And it creates a climate of fear and uncertainty for journalists that fosters self-censorship.The ten portraits presented by Reporters Without Borders today try to put names and faces to these tragic statistics and to give an idea of the scale and form that impunity can take in these murders. Whether the victims of execution-style killings, car-bombs or death under torture, all these journalists and bloggers are now the victims of the same evil.They were targeted for covering corruption or drug trafficking, criticizing government officials or intelligence agencies, or denouncing human rights abuses. Some cases have become emblematic, others are less known.Those responsible take many different forms and include governments, armed groups and hired killers. Their murders resulted in total or partial impunity. Investigations were sometimes launched only to turn into smokescreens. In some cases, the perpetrators were arrested but instigators were not touched.Read the portraits of:Samir Kassir – LebanonSyed Saleem Shahzad – PakistanLasantha Wickrematunga – Sri LankaAníbal Barrow – HondurasGuillermo Cano – ColombiaNorbert Zongo – Burkina FasoDidace Namujimbo – Democratic Republic of CongoKhadjimourad Kamalov – Daghestan (Russia)Hrant Dink – TurkeySattar Beheshti – IranSee other International Day to End Impunity initiatives on IFEX network website. to go further WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Receive email alerts News RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Follow the news on Middle East – North Africa June 9, 2021 Find out more News News Help by sharing this information Middle East – North Africa Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 June 3, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
