Internet service cuts threaten more than a hundred News agencies and sites in Iraq

 15/8/2018

GOI’s overall cut down of internet service in Iraq brought tens of News agencies and sites and E-journals to a standstill. The recurrence of this measure jeopardized the job security of hundreds of media workers. Additionally a no -information access nor circulation model was shadowing the media recently.

Press Freedom Advocacy Association in Iraq considers the incident as a dire violation to the constitution, namely, item 38 of the constitution that addressed press freedom and publishing in all forms.

The association is skeptical  about the excuse of Ministry of communication in its pursue to justify the lack of service saying that the feeders are down, and retains the right of suing Iraqi PM Haider Alibadi, after coordinating with all affected media bodies,  for taking this decision.
