 MAY 20, 2012   Freedom Forum is shocked to learn about flurry of attacks, threats, manhandles on journalists and vandalism on press vehicles across the country on May 20, 2012.

The banda enforcers and their supporters have not spared even the ambulance and vehicles of diplomatic mission in addition to the press vehicles in the country.

The vehicles belonging to the Kantipur TV, Himalaya TV, Avenues TV, Nepal One TV, and Citizens' FM were vandalized at different parts of the Kathmandu valley.

Freedom Forum therefore strongly urges the agitating groups to respect others' rights while protesting for their rights. More importantly they need to be restraint and media friendly in spite of imposing news on media.

Similarly, the government must provide security to the media houses and journalists working in risk throughout the country to protect people's right to information.
