Arrest of NYT photographer must be investigated

6 Aug

New
York, August 6, 2012–The Committee to Protect Journalists is concerned by the
arrest and alleged beating of a New York
Times
photographer while he was on assignment Saturday evening in New York City.

“The
report by The New York Times on the
arrest of its photographer, Robert Stolarik, raises questions about police
tactics
of blocking reporters covering street unrest and protests,” said
CPJ Deputy Director Robert Mahoney. “The New York City Police Department must
investigate this disturbing incident and ensure that officers allow all journalists
to do their job freely.”
