Press Behind Bars: Undermining Justice and Democracy

Friday 28 September 2018 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

The Committee to Protect Journalists will hold a panel discussion during the UN General Assembly to highlight global press freedom challenges, with emphasis on Myanmar, Bangladesh, Egypt, and Kyrgyzstan as countries where journalists are imprisoned for their work and denied due process. The cases of Reuters reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are emblematic: they were set up by Myanmar police, falsely arrested, convicted under Myanmar's Official Secrets Act, and sentenced to seven years of hard labor, all in a protracted effort to silence their truthful reporting.   Joel Simon, executive director, Committee to Protect Journalists, Amal Clooney, barrister, Stephen Adler, president and editor-in-chief, Reuters. RSVP no later than 25 September
