Data from the UN shows that in the last twelve years, that is from 2006-2017, close to one thousand and ten journalists have been killed in the line of duty. The report says in nine out of ten cases the killers go unpunished. This is why the UN is condemning attacks and violence against journalists and media workers. The UN is urging Member States to endeavour to prevent violence against journalists and media workers, to ensure accountability, and bring to justice perpetrators of crimes against journalists and media workers, and ensure that victims have access to appropriate remedies. GBC’s Rebecca Ekpe in this report shares stark realities of what impunity does to journalists and freedom of expression, ahead of ‘International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists’.
