Impunity: States must act

We have reached a new step in the fight against the outrageous impunity which murderers of journalists enjoy. Indeed, the Convention on the Safety and Independence of Journalists and Other Media Professionals drafted by the IFJ is ready.

Now we need to bring it to the General Assembly of the United Nations. Our aim is to tackle those States who target the press for its critical work, those who neglect their democratic role and those who sometimes even arm journalists’ murderers.
