King’s Grip on Nepalese Media Tightens
PDF File Size: 27 KB | Download   
King Gyanendra’s grip on the Nepalese media continues to tighten by using a combination of all possible measures to control free expression in Nepal. “Threats and intimidation are the basis of all the controls used by the Nepalese Government to control the media; summoning editors, regulating press lass, withdrawing advertising funding, arresting or jailing journalists the result is the same – the democratic space in Nepal is becoming a tight squeeze,” said IFJ President Christopher Warren. The IFJ is concerned over the following incidents affecting press freedom in Nepal:Editors summoned, Government cripples private media, Government control spreads with proposed Press Council amendments, Journalists arrested, Editor dies.
