|Washington, D.C., May 8, 2007—A panel
sponsored by the Committee to Protect Journalists and the National Press
Club’s Freedom of the Press Committee today expressed concern about the
ongoing detentions without charge of two journalists by the U.S. military
in Iraq and at the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Associated
Press photographer Bilal Hussein and Al-Jazeera camera operator Sami
al-Haj, both imprisoned by the U.S. military without due process, were the
focus of discussion. Hussein has been held for 13 months, and al-Haj for
more than five years.|
|Washington, D.C., May 9, 2007—Mexico’s federal
government must take concrete steps to protect press freedom and prosecute
those responsible for crimes against the press, a delegation from the
Committee to Protect Journalists said in a meeting Tuesday with the
Mexican ambassador to the United States, Arturo Sarukhan Casamitjana.
Expressing concern about the wave of deadly attacks against the media, the
CPJ delegation called on the Mexican government to strengthen the office
of the special prosecutor for press crimes and to make protection of free
expression a federal responsibility. Versión
