A third journalist, Mohammad Hidari, was arrested at his work place. The reasons for their arrests and where they are being held are not yet known.At the same time, several other journalists have been summoned and interrogated by intelligence ministry officials in recent days.Amid allegations of corruption and hit by the international economic downturn, the Islamic Republic has been resorting to all possible means to silence its critics – censoring newspapers, controlling online content, arresting journalists and in some cases threatening their relatives.Peter Horrocks, the head of global news at the BBC, reported yesterday that relatives and friends of around 10 Iranians who work in London for BBC Persian Television had been harassed by the Iranian authorities following the broadcast of a documentary about the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.Horrocks said they were summoned for questioning, passports were confiscated and some were banned from leaving the country.This is not the first time that the regime has threatened the families of exile journalists or used this kind of intimidation as a form of blackmail in an attempt to manipulate media.Reporters Without Borders knows of more than 50 cases of threats, arrests and harassment of families of journalists in Iran. In an unprecedented exodus, more than 250 journalists and bloggers have fled the country since the disputed presidential election of June 2009. The families of most of the journalists working for independent media abroad have been threatened by the regime’s various intelligence services.

Hu Jia arrived home at 2:30 in the morning. Safe, very happy.”She followed up today with this Tweet for journalists and her husband’s supporters: “Don’t come to see us. You would not be able to enter.” The couple’s home has been placed under tight police surveillance.Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn that Hu is finally free, but is concerned about his current circumstances, the curbs on his freedom of expression and movement and the pressure being put on him and his family. The press freedom organization will closely follow the treatment he receives, especially after the media’s attention has moved elsewhere.His release, coinciding with a visit to Europe by Prime Minister Wen Jiabao, must not divert attention from the intensified crackdown on dissidents in recent months, at a time when China risks being infected by the Arab revolutions.The police recently told Zeng that her husband would probably not be able to lead a “normal life” after his release. It seems that he is being placed under a form of house arrest, as other newly released activists have in recent months.Interviewed yesterday by Hong Kong-based Cable TV, Hu said he wanted to resume his political activities, but in a careful way, taking account of the possible consequences to his family. “You should be loyal to your conscience,” he said, adding: “They have told me to live an ordinary life and not clash with the regime, because this regime is very cruel and it arbitrarily violates the dignity of its citizens.”An environmentalist and campaigner for the rights of AIDS sufferers, Hu was released on completing a three-and-a-half-year jail sentence on a charge of attempted subversion in comments he posted online and interviews he gave to the foreign media. Under his sentence, he is now deprived of his political rights for a year.The European parliament awarded Hu the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought in 2008.AFP PHOTO/ Zeng Jinyan/HO ChinaAsia – Pacific Organisation RSF_en to go further News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison China’s Cyber Censorship Figures March 12, 2021 Find out more
News News FranceEurope – Central Asia Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin yesterday brought a libel suit against journalist Airy Routier, the author of a book about the Clearstream affair entitled “Complot des paranos,” and against his publisher, Albin Michel. Routier is the fourth journalist to be sued by the prime minister in connection with this case.————21 of juneGovernment told that ‘deeds not words’ will protect press freedomReporters Without Borders has voiced disappointment at the French government’s apparent failure to act on its promise to allow journalists to protect their sources of information.The press freedom organisation said that remarks made by the justice minister on 20 June simply repeated what had been announced in a New Year message to the press on 11 January 2006 and in even less definite terms.“There has been no concrete progress since then and no law has been drafted on the issue. We hope that parliamentarians will get back onto this case in the autumn,” the press freedom organisation said.“We have doubts about whether the government really wants to protect press freedom in France, when the Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin had just laid a complaint for defamation against three journalists.“Mr de Villepin’s decision just confuses the justice minister’s message”, it said. “To our knowledge, no prime minister while in office has ever acted against the press before Mr de Villepin, and the presidents of the 5th Republic had promised never to do so,” it added.French Justice Minister, Pascal Clément, said on 11 January 2006, that the right to protect sources was to be included in the press law of 29 July 1881. Reporters Without Borders had welcomed the initiative which it hailed as “real progress” explaining that journalists would get the advantage of increased guarantees, particularly during searches of their homes.But at a conference in Paris on 20 June, organised by the organisation, Presse-Liberté, Mr Clément said he “was hoping” to include the right of protection of sources, when he had said in January it would indeed be inscribed in law.He also said that he was “contemplating” extending the same rules about searches of press business premises to the homes of journalists. In his January speech, the minister had promised to do so.Meanwhile, on 19 June, Mr de Villepin launched libel proceedings against Denis Robert, journalist and writer, author of several books on the Clearstream case – involving faked bribery allegations against senior politicians – the latest of which, “Clearstream, the Investigation”, has been temporarily withdrawn from sale. The prime minister is also suing Jean-Marie Pontaut and Gilles Gaetner, authors of “Showdown at the Elysee”. They are respectively editor and deputy editor of the investigative service of the weekly L’Express.
