Abuja, Nigeria, July 10, 2012–A
Belgian journalist who released a critical documentary on the murder of a human
rights activist was denied entry into the Democratic Republic of the Congo on
Sunday. The Committee to Protect Journalists denounces the country’s decision
to block Thierry Michel entry into the country for what seems to be an attempt
to silence critical journalism.
