END IMPUNITY FOR CRIMES TARGETING JOURNALISTS
EDM #630
Tabled 02 November 2015
2015-16 Session
That this House notes that last year 118 media workers lost their lives, yet just one out of 10 such killings of journalists is investigated; supports the annual campaign held every November by the International Federation of Journalists to end impunity for governments and de facto authorities globally in respect of crimes targeting journalists; further notes that the 2015 campaign puts a specific emphasis on crimes against journalists in Mexico, Yemen, the Philippines and Ukraine; believes that such impunity not only endangers journalists but also imperils democracy and the public's right to know; and therefore resolves to do everything in its power to hold governments across the world accountable for bringing to justice those responsible for killing journalists.
