SNJT calls on General Union of Arab Journalists to seriously take violation committed against Egyptian journalists

The Tunisian National Union of Journalists (SNJT), Saturday, called on the General Union of Arab Journalists to seriously take the violation committed against Arab journalists especially in Egypt and to work on ensuring freedom of press in the Arab world.

In a message to the General Union of Arab Journalists, the General Secretariat of which will meet on Saturday in Cairo, SNJT President Neji B’ghouri drew attention to the serious attacks on freedom of press in Egypt.

Egypt is one of the most hostile countries to freedom of press in the region, said B’ghouri who was denied visa entry to this country to take part in the General Union of Arab Journalists’ General Secretariat meeting.

He, in this respect, called on participants at this meeting to support the International Federation of Journalists President Philipe Leruth’s call to the President of General Union of Arab Journalists to work to secure the release of Egyptian journalist Mahmoud Hussein, held in Egyptian prisons since last December.

The SNJT further reiterated its call to General Union of Arab Journalists to denounce the continued imprisonment of Egyptian journalists who are victims of the systematic repression policy adopted by the current Egyptian regime.

Regional authorities and organisations are called, now more than ever, to take strong measures to end these practices, the message reads.

The SNJT is committed to using every means to spare no effort to defend the press and journalists in Egypt and the Arab world.
