Threat to Freedom of Expression

Journalist Prakriti Adhikari was issued a death threat for sharing the information via facebook about the transferring of relief quota teacher in Kathmandu on December 18. Kathmandu lies in Province 3.

Journalist Adhikari is associated with Gorkhapatra daily.

Talking to Freedom Forum, Adhikari shared that he was  threatened for sharing the letter that reads,'' relief teacher who has been transferred to Raghu Mabi, Tanahu, including his opinion that transferring of relief teacher is the unlawful act.''

Freedom Forum condemns the incident as it is the violation of freedom of expression guaranteed by the constitution of Nepal.  People must not be threatened just for sharing views through any media. It is the fundamental right of every citizen to express their views, opinions freely without any kind of hindrances.
