Eludir los asesinatos

El Índice Global de Impunidad 2014 del CPJ se enfoca en países donde los periodistas son asesinados y los responsables quedan libres

Periodistas protestan en el primer aniversario del asesinato de la periodista Regina Martínez Pérez. Los ataques contra la prensa son tan comunes que las autoridades mexicanas aprobaron una ley que dio mayor jurisdicción a las autoridades federales para enjuiciar crímenes contra periodistas.

CPJ - Países em Risco: onde a liberdade de imprensa está ameaçada

Vigilância, legislação restritiva na Internet e ciberataques
obrigam o CPJ a adicionar o ciberespaço na lista de lugares com tendências
na direção errada. Por Maya Taal

Partidários da Irmandade Muçulmana tentam empurrar um jornalista, ao centro, para longe da academia de polícia onde o presidente deposto Mohamed Morsi foi a julgamento, nos arredores de Cairo, em 4 de novembro de 2013. Talvez em nenhum lugar a liberdade de imprensa teve um declínio de forma mais dramática em 2013 do que no polarizado Egito. (Reuters/Amr Abdallah Dalsh).

CPJ Risk Listesi: Basın Özgürlüğü Nerelerde Sıkıntılı

Maya Taal

31 Ağustos 2013’te Der Spiegel ABD’nin Ulusal Güvenlik Ajansı’nın (NSA) Katar yayıncısı El Cezire’nin özel iletişimlerini hacklediğini duyurdu. Alman haber dergisi eski NSA çalışanı Edward Snowden’ın sızdırdığı belgeleri adres göstererek, NSA’nın El Cezire tarafından özel olarak korunan ilginç hedeflerin iletişimlerine girmeyi “dikkate değer bir başarı” olarak addettiğini yazdı.

Russia should support International Day to End Impunity

New York, November 18, 2013--The Committee to Protect Journalists urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to join the many voices around the world demanding justice for murdered journalists and remembering the fallen on November 23, International Day to End Impunity. As Russia finalizes preparations for hosting the 2014 Winter Olympics and looks to its upcoming tenure on the U.N. Human Rights Council, this is the ideal time for Moscow to affirm its commitment to tackling impunity, CPJ said. Read the full letter.

Beketov's untimely death, and Putin's unfulfilled promise

Mikhail Beketov's recovery, in photos by CPJ and news agencies.

Mikhail Beketov, the former crusading editor of the independent newspaper Khimkinskaya Pravda in the Moscow suburb, Khimki, died this afternoon at a Moscow hospital. A choking episode during lunch led to heart failure, Elena Kostyuchenko, Beketov's friend and a reporter for the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, told CPJ by phone from Moscow. Really, though, Beketov's life was taken by the thugs who smashed his skull, broke his legs, pulverized his hands, and left him to die in the freezing cold nearly five years ago. He defied them, surviving that November 2008 night and valiantly rallying in the ensuing years, but the once robust and fearless editor was never the same.

Mikhail Beketov

Mikhail Beketov, 55, the former editor of the independent newspaper Khimkinskaya Pravda in the Moscow suburb of Khimki, died in a Moscow hospital from heart failure stemming from a choking episode during lunch, Elena Kostyuchenko, Beketov's friend and a reporter for the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, told CPJ by phone.

The choking incident was directly related to a November 2008 assault on Beketov, which left him in a coma for several months, according to Kostyuchenko and news reports. When he was in the coma, surgeons maintained his breathing by inserting a tube during a tracheotomy. Kostyuchenko said the combination of the deep tracheal scars and the food led to him choking, which blocked airflow to his lungs and in turn led to heart failure.

In November 2008, neighbors had found Beketov lying in his front yard in Khimki, more than 24 hours after unidentified assailants crushed his skull, broke his legs, smashed both hands, and left him to die in the cold. Physicians removed part of Beketov's brain after the attack, and amputated a leg as well as some fingers, according to news reports. The journalist regularly visited the hospital for checkups.

Prior to the attack, Beketov had publicly accused Vladimir Strelchenko, then the mayor of Khimki, of nepotism and corruption and had heavily criticized his administration's decision to replace parts of a local forest with a freeway.

Yevgeniya Chirikova, a local environmental activist and contributor to Khimkinskaya Pravda, told CPJ that Beketov had received multiple threats in connection to his work. She said that unknown men had approached and told him, "You're due for a hit." In May 2007, unknown attackers firebombed Beketov's car, and killed his dog, Chirikova told CPJ.

Authorities, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, promised to bring his attackers to justice but investigators failed to name or arrest anyone in connection with the assault. Instead, two years after the attack, the journalist was convicted of libel in connection with a lawsuit filed by Strelchenko. He was ordered to pay 5,000 rubles in damages to the former mayor. A higher court later overturned the verdict.
