CCRI Establishes Legal Support Desk to Promote Right to Information


06 June, 2010 -

On the auspicious occasion of May 3, World Press Freedom Day we extend warm wishes and greetings to all. We wish for the successful achievement of this year's theme: "Freedom of Information: Th e Right to Know".


On this occasion we would also like to remind the commitments that we have made through Article 19 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and Interim Constitution 2007 to ensure the right to Freedom of Expression. Keeping in mind the degrading situation of Press Freedom, Freedom of Expression and Right to Information in Nepal, we would like to appeal the government, political parties and other stakeholders to work for its protection and fulfillment of national and international obligations.
