Media violations commission begins work

KABUL: The Commission of Media Violations (CMV) kicked off its activities yesterday (Monday), the Ministry of Information and Culture said.
Despite the formation of the CMV, there has been a delay in the start of its operations, according to the deputy Information and Culture Minister, Mahajir Farahi.
Farahi said that he will commence the operations of the commission with journalists in a meeting on (Monday).
“The first meeting was for introductions, the second will discuss the challenges and the practical activities of the CMV,” according to him. This comes as journalists complained that they have been facing severe challenges during coverage of news events and incidents. Also, the media-supporting organizations called on the CMV to address the challenges of journalists in Afghanistan.
“We hope the commission will begin operations as soon as possible and pay attention to the cases of journalists who are currently in detention,” said Farhad Behroz, deputy head of the Union of Afghanistan’s Freelance Journalists, as quoted by media.
“We call on the Islamic Emirate to send an official statement about the media law enforcement to all departments, so that they treat the media based on the law,” said Masroor Lutfi, head of the Afghanistan National Journalists Union (ANJU).
The CMV includes representatives from the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Vice and Virtue, the security department and members of the journalist’s union, according to the Ministry of Information of Culture.
