Ten Journalist Murder Cases To Solve

Ten journalist murder cases to solve

SOURCE: Committee to Protect Journalists

(CPJ/IFEX) - New York, April 29, 2010 - In the Philippines, political clan members slaughter more than 30 news media workers and dump their bodies in mass graves. In Sri Lanka, a prominent editor who has criticized authorities is so sure of retaliation that he predicts his own murder. In these and many other journalist killings worldwide, no one has been convicted.

To mark World Press Freedom Day, May 3, CPJ is spotlighting 10 emblematic cases worldwide in which journalists have been killed with impunity. CPJ is challenging authorities to solve these 10 crimes and send a message that they are committed to reversing the grave problem of impunity in journalist murders.

"These journalists fought injustice while they lived," said CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon. "We are left to continue their struggle now that they are gone."
