Latest Report: China – World’s No. 1 Jailer of Journalists

Posted by Author on December 12, 2006

China has been the world’s No.1 jailer of journalists for the 8th consecutive year, with 31 imprisoned, reported in its annual survey published on December 7, 2006, by the Committee to Protectchina- no.1 jailer Journalists (CPJ). Cuba, Eritrea, and Ethiopia were the other top 4 jailers among the 24 nations who imprisoned journalists.

The report shows that about three-quarters of the cases in China were brought under vague “antistate” laws; 19 cases involve Internet journalists. China’s list includes Shi Tao, an internationally recognized journalist serving a 10-year sentence for posting notes online detailing propaganda department instructions on how to cover the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown. The government declared the instructions a “state secret.”
CPJ’s annual worldwide census found one in three is now an Internet blogger, online editor, or Web-based reporter.

The roster of jailed Internet journalists includes China’s “citizen” reporters, the independent Cuban writers who file reports for overseas Web sites, and the U.S. video blogger Joshua Wolf who refused to hand over footage to a grand jury.

“China is challenging the notion that the Internet is impossible to control or censor, and if it succeeds there will be far-ranging implications, not only for the medium but for press freedom all over the world.” CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon said.

CPJ’s special report 2006 can be found here:
