Journalists obstructed reporting global event

The journalists associated with dozens of media were denied entrance for reporting the world meeting of the Non-Resident Nepalis' Association (NRNA) being held in Hyatt Hotel of central capital, Kathmandu. Kathmandu lies in Province 3.

On the inaugural of the global event on October 15, the security personnel and organizers obstructed them entering event hall, saying they must possess a special pass issued by the NRNA particularly.

Denying journalists to report the high level program conveniently has violated their right to free reporting. The Head of the State was scheduled to grace the program as chief guest.

FF asserts that journalist’s right to access public information must not be thwarted.  So, FF condemns the incident that violated press freedom.
