Justice must be done for the murder of journalists: UNESCO

AMN

UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has said, justice must be done for the murder of journalists, who perform important functions in taking forward fundamental freedoms and bolstering the strength of societies.

In her message for the International Day, observed annually on 2 November, Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova said justice is a cornerstone of a free society and it dissuades those who threaten freedom of expression and emboldens those who stand to defend it.

In his speech, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said when journalists are targeted, societies as a whole also pay the price. He said UN is committed to helping to create the environment journalists need to perform their vital work.

From 2006 to 2016, at least 930 journalists were killed worldwide and in 2016 alone, about 102 journalists were killed in the line of duty. More than nine out of 10 cases, the perpetrators are never brought to justice.
