Novo recorde de jornalistas preso em todo o mundo

By Ninian Carter

December 21, 2022 - Um recorde de 533 jornalistas estão atualmente detidos em todo o mundo, segundo os Repórteres Sem Fronteiras. O número de jornalistas
feitos reféns subiu para 65, com 57 dados como mortos.

Reporters Without Borders (Reporters Sans Frontières – RSF) says a record 533 journalists were imprisoned worldwide in 2022 (339 untried) – a 13.4% rise on the previous year

China is the biggest jailer, incarcerating 110 journalists. Myanmar holds 62 journalists, making it the second biggest jailer in the world. Iran is in third place with 47, Vietnam fourth on 39, and Belarus fifth with 31 imprisoned journalists. Altogether those five countries account for 54% of the world’s jailed media workers.

RSF says 65 journalists are being held hostage around the world (mostly in Syria) and 49 journalists are missing.

The number of journalists killed in 2022 reached 57, eight of which died in Ukraine – an overall increase of 18.8% on 2021.

Despite Russia’s invasion, fewer journalists died there than in peacetime Mexico, where 11 journalists were murdered.

RSF’s data covers January 1 to December 1, 2022.
