OHCHR-Nepal Deplores The Killing Of Media Group Chairperson Arun Singhanyia
PDF File Size: 58 KB | Download   
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. “OHCHR deplores the killing of the publisher Arun Singhanyia”, said Andrew Palmer, Officer-in-Charge of OHCHR-Nepal. “The protection of journalists is of paramount importance in a democratic society and both state and non-state actors must show full respect for press freedom and support a free and independent media.
