National Human Rights Commission and FNJ discuss on Media Council Bill held

KATHMANDU: A discussion was held between the National Human Rights Commission and Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ) on the Bill that was tabled by the government to amend and integrate laws relating to Media Council Bill.
A team from Commission led by Commission’s Acting Chairman Prakash Wosti and members from FNJ led by FNJ Secretary Shital Mahato held the discussion here Tuesday.
During the discussion, Acting Chairman Wosti said that the Commission always stood for human rights and it would voice its opinion after minutely reading the provisions in the Bill that posed threat to press freedom.
Similarly, FNJ Secretary Mahato underscored the need to make laws that could ensure full press freedom as enshrined in the preamble of our constitution.
It may be noted that the FNJ has been protesting against the Bill which, the umbrella organization of the journalists in the country, claimed to infringe on press freedom.
