Pakistan:Musharraf government ignores promises to protect journalists

New York, September 21, 2006—As violence against journalists and violations of press freedom grow in Pakistan, the Committee to Protect Journalists calls on the government to keep its promise to reveal all information it holds on media deaths and disappearances.

CPJ research shows that nine journalists have died for their work since 2002, and there have been at least 20 other cases in which journalists have been assaulted or improperly detained. In recent months, the shooting deaths of two journalists apparently went uninvestigated by the government, and the teenage brother of a BBC reporter was shot after the family’s home was bombed in December of last year. In addition, five men have disappeared, two of whom emerged from more than three months in secret government detention and were finally charged. The whereabouts of the three still missing is not known. The most recent unexplained disappearance happened on Wednesday.
