Murder of Boris Nemtsov highlights Russia's impunity record

The brazen contract-style killing of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov on Friday night--carried out within range of a dozen security cameras and yards from the Kremlin walls in Moscow--serves as a grim reminder of the risks government critics face in Russia.

El camino a la justicia

Capítulo 1: ¿Qué significa la impunidad?

En 1981, el año de la fundación del CPJ, la sociedad argentina todavía sufría la llamada "guerra sucia", que dejó un saldo de decenas de desaparecidos entre los periodistas. La mayoría de ellos nunca fueron vistos nuevamente y, hasta hoy, nadie ha documentado sistemáticamente los asesinatos de periodistas y nadie sabe con exactitud cuántos periodistas murieron. No sorprende, ante tal vacío informativo, que la comunidad internacional haya prestado poca atención a las desapariciones de periodistas o a la catastrófica situación de los derechos humanos sobre la cual muchos de los periodistas asesinados intentaban informar.

Capítulo 1: O Que Significa Impunidade?

Em 1981, ano em que o CPJ foi fundado, a Argentina estava enredada na chamada Guerra Suja, em que dezenas de jornalistas desapareceram. A maioria nunca mais foi vista. Até hoje, ninguém documentou sistematicamente os assassinatos de trabalhadores de mídia que ocorreram, e ninguém sabe precisamente quantos jornalistas pereceram. Não é de surpreender, dado o vazio de informações, que tenha havido pouca atenção internacional sobre os desaparecimentos de jornalistas ou a catástrofe mais ampla de direitos humanos que muitos dos jornalistas assassinados tentavam cobrir.

Le chemin vers la justice

Chapitre 1: Que signifie l'impunité?

En 1981, l'année de création du CPJ, l'Argentine était embourbée dans ce qu'il est convenu d'appeler une sale guerre au cours de laquelle des dizaines de journalistes ont disparu. La plupart ne sont jamais revenus. À ce jour, personne n'a documenté systématiquement ces assassinats de professionnels des médias, et personne ne peut dire avec précision combien de journalistes ont péri. Etant donné le manque d'information au cours de cette période, l'attention internationale sur les disparitions de journalistes ou sur la situation catastrophique des droits de l'homme, que la plupart des journalistes assassinés tentaient de couvrir, était quasiment nulle.

The Road to Justice

1. What Does Impunity Mean?

In 1981, the year CPJ was founded, Argentina was enmeshed in the so-called Dirty War, in which dozens of journalists were disappeared. Most were never seen again. To this day, no one has systematically documented the media murders that took place, and no one knows precisely how many journalists perished. Not surprisingly, given the information void, there was little international attention on journalists’ disappearances or the broader human rights catastrophe that many of the murdered reporters were seeking to cover.

The Road to Justice

Appendix I

At least 370 journalists have been murdered in direct connection to their work from the beginning of 2004 through 2013, according to CPJ research. In 333 of the cases, no one has been convicted. In 28 cases, some suspects have been sentenced, or killed in the course of apprehension, but others believed to be connected to or to have ordered the crime remain free. Nine cases have reached complete justice, meaning all of the perpetrators, including the crime’s mastermind, have been convicted. CPJ maintains detailed records on journalists killings from 1992 to the present. For additional information, please visit http://cpj.org/killed.
