Rwanda Press Releases

rwandaMost journalists in Rwanda face incessant attacks and harassment. This includes arrests, detention, ill-treatment, death threats and extra-judicial killings. However, the risk of imprisonment or exile is the most frequent threat  to Rwandese journalists. Most have been found guilty of defamation and have received disproportionate sentences. This has resulted in media self-censorship.

ARTICLE 19 is working with Rwandese journalists to mitigate these challenges and increase freedom of expression in their country.
