Rizk Condemns Campaign Against Journalists

As Lebanon's journalists and media figures are being targeted by a suppression campaign whose latest victims are Voice of Lebanon radio host Nawal Lichaa Abboud and Kataeb website writer Sonia Rizk, the latter wondered if the journalist nowadays becomes immediately subject to prosecution just by relaying somebody else's positions.

Rizk was summoned before the ISF's Cybercrimes Unit over an article she had written, and posted on the Kataeb.org website, about the corrupt behavior of a minister's adviser

“My case has been referred to the Public Prosecution. What wrongdoing did I commit in simply conveying my source’s statement and information? Does the messenger have to be punished?” she said in a report aired on Voice of Lebanon radio station.
