A decree ratifying the new measure is expected to be adopted shortly.Reporters Without Borders has asked the Ministry of Culture and Communications to reconsider the measure and allow journalists to work for several foreign media outlets withoutrestrictions, as has been the custom in recent years. The organisation fears that the new measure may seriously hamper the work of correspondents for international media outlets. Reporters without Borders is also worried that the measure is partially aimed at limiting the reporting of Algerian news in the foreign press.While defending the restrictive measure, a ministry representative told Reporters Without Borders, “Inno country is a journalist allowed to work for several different media outlets. Correspondents must work exclusively for one media outlet.”For several years now, the Ministry of Culture and Communications’ Press and Accreditations Office has offered Algerian journalists the unrestricted option of working as correspondents for several foreign media outlets. An annualaccreditation was granted and was renewable upon request. Algerian journalists who work for the foreign press have not been issued their 2004 accreditation cards to date.According to Anis Rahmani, a journalist for the daily “El Khabar” and correspondent for the London-based newspaper “El Hayat” and Lebanese television station LBC, “This measure is aimed at suppressing news about Algerian events and avoiding international scrutiny. The step also represents a genuine threat for foreign media outlets. It is a calculated effort to limit their choice of correspondents in Algeria and stop them from working with those of their own choosing.”Haïthem Rabani, who works for seven different foreign media outlets, including the radio stations Voice of America and Deutsche Welle, expressed outrage over the newly-imposed restrictions. “The measure is likely to encourage newspaperand radio journalists to work under pseudonyms. Television journalists are most at risk. Because they have to send their reports via the studios of the national television station, they will not be able to use unofficial channels. Tapes of news reports may have to be sent out in the suitcases of grandmothers travelling abroad!”. News News May 12, 2021 Find out more April 29, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
