El camino a la justicia

Capítulo 5: Aumentar la presión y garantizar que se cumpla la ley

Las Naciones Unidas han redoblado la atención sobre los asesinatos de periodistas y han declarado que los ataques impunes son una grave amenaza no solamente para la libertad de prensa, sino también para todas las áreas principales del trabajo de la ONU. En los últimos años, ha adoptado dos resoluciones que abordan la seguridad de los periodistas y la cuestión de la impunidad, y ha lanzado un plan de acción. Estas medidas se suman a la Resolución 1738 ya vigente del Consejo de Seguridad, que condena los ataques contra periodistas en zonas de conflicto. "No debe haber impunidad para los que cometen actos de violencia contra los periodistas", proclamó el secretario general de la ONU, Ban Ki-moon, en una declaración emitida en los días previos al Día Mundial de la Libertad de Prensa, el 3 de mayo de 2014.

Capítulo 5: Criar Pressão, Exigir Cumprimento

As Nações Unidas aumentaram seu foco nos assassinatos de jornalistas, declarando que os ataques impunes contra jornalistas são uma grande ameaça não só à liberdade de imprensa, mas também a todas as principais áreas de trabalho da ONU. Nos últimos anos, adotaram duas resoluções que tratam de segurança dos jornalistas e da impunidade e lançaram um plano de ação. Estes vieram reforçar a resolução 1738 já existente do Conselho de Segurança, que condena os ataques a jornalistas em situações de conflito.

Le chemin vers la justice

Chapitre 5 : Faire pression, assurer l'état de droit

Les Nations unies ont intensifié l'attention accordée aux assassinats de journalistes, et déclaré que les attaques impunies contre des journalistes représentent une menace majeure, non seulement contre la liberté de presse, mais aussi contre tous les domaines principaux de travail de l'ONU. Ces dernières années, deux résolutions traitant de la sécurité des journalistes et de l'impunité ont été adoptées, et un plan d'action a été lancé. Ceux-ci s'ajoutent à la résolution existante 1738 du Conseil de sécurité, qui condamne les attaques contre les journalistes dans les situations de conflit. « Il ne saurait y avoir d'impunité pour ceux qui prennent les journalistes pour cibles [ou] les soumettent à des actes de violence », a proclamé le secrétaire général des Nations unies Ban Ki Moon lors d'une déclaration dans le cadre de la Journée mondiale de la liberté de la presse, le 3 mai 2014.

The Road to Justice

5. Building Pressure, Enforcing Compliance

The United Nations has escalated its focus on journalist killings, declaring that unpunished attacks against journalists are a major threat not only to press freedom, but also to all major areas of the U.N.’s work. In recent years, it has adopted two resolutions addressing journalists’ safety and impunity and launched a plan of action. These have come on top of existing Security Council Resolution 1738, which condemns attacks against journalists in conflict. “There must be no impunity for those who target journalists for violence,” U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon proclaimed in a statement in the run-up to World Press Freedom Day, May 3, 2014.
