Demonstration to Call for Release of Eynulla Fatullayev

Azerbaijani newspaper editor Eynulla Fatullayev, 33, is serving an eight-and-a-half year prison sentence based on trumped up charges of terrorism and defamation. He was jailed in April 2007 after writing a series of articles critical of the authorities. On 22 April 2010, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that he had been wrongfully imprisoned and called for his immediate release.

Uganda: ARTICLE 19 Urges Government to Change Approach to Regulation of Print Media and Journalism

ARTICLE 19 today releases its analysis of the proposed Press and Journalist (Amendment) Bill 2010, and the Press and Journalist Act 1995, which the Ugandan government seeks to amend. ARTICLE 19 recommends that the Ugandan government repeal the whole Press and Journalist Act rather than amend it and adopt a fundamentally different approach to the regulation of print media and journalism that respects the government’s international obligations on freedom of expression.

Kenya/Ethiopia: ARTICLE 19 Building Capacity of Legal Professionals from Ethiopia and Kenya on Media Law

ARTICLE 19 has delivered a training workshop in Kenya on media law and freedom of expression for 30 lawyers, judges, prosecutors and state officials from Ethiopia and Kenya. This is especially relevant at a time when increasingly restrictive laws are being passed in Ethiopia to control civil society organisations and there are concerns about the Ethiopian Government’s commitment to freedom of expression in the country.
