OHCHR-Nepal deplores the killing of media group chairperson Arun Singhanyia
PDF File Size: 116 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal is deeply concerned to learn of the killing of Arun Singhanyia,
chairperson of the Janakpur Today Media Group, who was shot dead on 1 March 2010 in Janakpur. This comes a year after the killing of Uma Singh, a woman journalist who worked with the same media group, and only one month after the murder of Kathmandu-based media entrepreneur Jamim Shah. Threats and violence directed at the media can jeopardise the right to freedom of expression. Journalists must be able to carry out professional journalism in a safe
environment with full respect for their human rights. The perpetrators of these crimes must be held fully accountable and the state must provide the necessary security - and intervene as appropriate - for all journalists under threat.
