Media under constant threat

Freedom Forum has recorded some more incidents of press freedom violation that occurred on the third day (22 May, 2012) of Nepal banda (general shutdown) called by the ethnic communities.

In Kanchanjungha, a hilly district in the eastern most region of the country, a local Tamor FM was threatened of arson by a banda enforcer named Navin Pomu, said station manager Sajan Poudel.

These activities show how miserable the Nepali media is these days.

To sheer mockery of rule of law and press freedom, the attacks on intimidation on free press continued . It is quite worrying the government remained mute spectator to the attack on press.

Freedom Forum condemns the incidents of press freedom violation and shows grave concern over government's apathy towards media freedom.
