PRESS STATEMENT BY Institute of Maltese Journalists (IĠM)

JOURNALISTS SHOULD BE ALLOWED
THE FREEDOM TO DO THEIR JOBS

Journalists, photographers and camerapersons should be allowed the freedom to do their jobs, especially when this is in a public place, they are not breaking any regulations and when the subject is of news value, which they feel is of national interest.

The Head of News of Media.Link Communications asked for the protection of the Institute of Maltese Journalists (IĠM) as Media.Link Communications were following a story that was published in another newspaper.

Last week the IĠM felt it had to defend the right to the confidentiality of the source of journalists after the police said it was going to request the Court to order the Editor of MaltaToday to reveal the source of information that he had received in connection with the fuel procurement scandal.
Every medium can chose what is of news value and the IĠM appeals for this harassment of journalists should not be repeated.
