Journalists Vow to Defy Planned Limits on Media

January 12, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Media outlets in Zimbabwe said they plan to defy a proposed law that would severely restrict their freedoms before the presidential election. Five news groups also said they would challenge the Access to Information and Privacy Bill in court if it is signed into law.

President Robert Mugabe's ruling party, which controls parliament, is to put the bill to a vote Tuesday. The measure would ban foreign journalists from operating during the March 9-10 elections.
