Eritrea: Press freedom

EMDHR from Eritrea writes on the lack of press freedom in Eritrea….”Nowadays, in Eritrea, the government in power controls the mass media. Newspapers, radio and television stations are predominantly government owned or censored. As a result of this, an atmosphere of phobia and lack of interest is created among journalists and those individuals who want to express their views and concerns through this avenue. Being denied this inalienable right, the people are not sincere at all in expressing their views about how they really feel about an administration when asked”
