FPJ slams PA for imposing news blackout on its corruption

[ PIC 28/04/2013 – 09:23 AM ]

images_News_2013_04_28_Fayyad-corruption_300_0[1]GAZA, (PIC)– The forum of Palestinian journalists (FPJ) criticized the Palestinian media for ignoring the report that was issued by the coalition for accountability and transparency-Aman on the corruption rampant in the Palestinian authority institutions in the West Bank.

In a press release on Saturday, the forum denounced the PA for hastening to impose a new blackout on this report.

It stressed that banning the media from dealing with this report constituted a serious violation of freedom of the press and the right of the Palestinian citizens to know the truth.

The forum affirmed that the report underlined many corruption issues related to the embezzlement of public funds, money laundering, the abuse of public office and many other financial and administrative violations as well as it documented some of the arrests and violations that happened to journalists in 2013 in the West Bank.

“The PA should hold accountable and prosecute those responsible for these issues, instead of taking arbitrary decisions by ignoring the report and the serious facts it has included,” the forum stated.

The forum urged the Palestinian media not to submit to the policy of media blackout and mouth muzzling pursued by the PA, and to set themselves free of fears through exposing the violations committed against the journalists in the West Bank.
