Al Jazeera Under fire in Yemen

Posted by FREE ADEN on July 16, 2009


Al-Jazeera has been under fire in Yemen, where the authorities don’t want its reporters covering the Peaceful Liberation Movement in the south.

In the words of one Member of Parliament for the ruling party, said: “It runs stories which Yemen’s enemies completely exploit, especially the secessionists who aim to deform Yemen’s image abroad.”

Yemen’s new press court, set up specially to try journalists, opened for business at the weekend, with 150 cases pending. The first to be tried is an editor who published a story about corruption in a government ministry.

The press court, as one Yemeni journalist pointed out, is modeled on the government’s special court for dealing with suspected terrorists – “The charges are even the same, ‘threatening the country’s security and stability’.
