Mogherini: EU committed to promote press freedom in the world

BRUSSELS, May 2 (KUNA) — The EU announced Monday that it is committed to continue promoting and protecting freedom of opinion and expression worldwide, not only offline but also in relation to the cyberspace and other information communication technologies.
“The EU condemns the increasing level of intimidation and violence that journalists, Human Rights Defenders, media actors and other individuals face in many countries across the world when exercising the right to freedom of opinion and expression online and offline,” said EU High Representative Federica Mogherini in a declaration to mark World Press Freedom Day.
“The EU is determined to fight against laws or practices that impose censorship, encourage self-censorship or provide legal penalties, including criminal, financial and administrative sanctions, as well as against the misuse of market powers and poor economic conditions,” she added. (end) nk.nfm
