SANEF Hail PAP Media Declaration

SANEF says that a PAP decision to launch a continent-wide campaign to promote press freedom is a ‘major move’

The South African National Editors’ Forum (SANEF) says that a Pan African Parliament (PAP) decision to launch a continent-wide campaign to promote press freedom is a ‘major move’.
 
In a press statement, SANEF points out that, “(We) regard this as a major move by a governmental institution to combat the growing secrecy adopted by most African governments in the conduct of affairs which should be open to the public.”
 
The organisation further states that attacks on journalists had resulted in deaths, injury, and long prison sentences almost entirely on trumped-up charges.
