Djibouti Press Releases

djiboutiA climate of intolerance continues unabated in Djibouti. There is little respect for freedom of expression and violence against journalists is commonplace. Journalists and opposition activists continue to be harassed and intimidated and, in the worst cases, have been arbitrarily detained and tortured. Peaceful assembly has been brutally suppressed and the right to freedom of peaceful assembly has been suspended entirely during election campaigns.

ARTICLE 19 is advocating for free speech and respect for the rights of journalists in Djibouti.
