Gross government violations of the press and journalist rights.THE SUDAN HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATION -- CAIRO
November 20, 2008 -- The Government of Sudan is required to respect the right of the Press and the right of all journalists to attend Parliament sessions, in general, and those sessions scheduled to pass a new law of the press and publications to govern journalist work and their relations with the authorities. The government prevented unlawfully hundreds of journalists from attending the National Assembly session on the new law on Monday November 17th.
