G. Karaivaz: 1 year since his assassination

G. Karaivaz: 1 year since his assassination
By Aristea from Solomon • Issue #45 • View online
To mark the one-year anniversary of the assassination of veteran Greek crime reporter Giorgos Karaivaz, the Media Freedom Rapid Response calls on the Greek authorities to urgently bring to justice all those responsible for this despicable murder.
The European Commission Recommendation on ensuring the protection, safety and empowerment of journalists and other media professionals in the European Union provides that “Member States should investigate and prosecute all criminal acts committed against journalists, whether online or offline, in an impartial, independent, effective, transparent and timely manner, making full use of existing national and European legislation, to ensure that fundamental rights are protected and justice is swiftly delivered in particular cases and prevent the emergence of a ‘culture’ of impunity regarding attacks against journalists”.
The longer that these kinds of attacks go unpunished, the higher the risk of long-term impunity.
