Tunisia-Ziad Dabbar condemns preventing private and foreign media from accompanying 1st session of the [Video]

Speaking to Tunisie Numérique, head of the Tunisian Journalists Syndicate Ziad Dabbar condemned the prevention of private media today from entering the headquarters of the Council of Councilors and covering the first session of the work of the Council of Regions and Districts.

Dabbarnoted that this incident had happened during the first parliamentary session, and only the public media had been allowed to keep pace with the beginning of the work of the House of People’s Representatives. If this indicates anything, it means that those in charge of organizing the work of the first session of the Council deal with the state as if it were a private farm.

Our speaker also underlined that the non-entry of journalists operating in the private sector and correspondents of international channels to cover this event is a blatant attack on the freedom of the press and on the citizen’s right to receive information, and it is also transparent evidence that whoever carries out these practices is ignorant of what he did in the country and its consequences.

Dabbar called on reporters to adhere to the law and cover the work of the first session, as keeping up with these events and conveying information is not a blessing to anyone. He pointed out in the same context that this ban contradicts the words of officials, who have repeatedly affirmed their respect for freedom of the press and their right to transmit information.
