The fast pace of events in Nepal in the first four months of this year have highlighted the role of the media here in keeping citizens informed and in promoting public debate about important issues. In the context of the mass demonstrations in April, Nepali journalists and media workers were at the front line each day, in towns and cities across the country, and often took great risks to ensure that these historical events were brought to households across Nepal and the international community.
We know from our own monitoring of demonstrations and the conduct of security
forces that journalists suffered injuries while doing their work to cover this story, andthat many were arrested and detained.
