 Arrest of Journalists during investigation is against Press Law, says Gorran  

 The Change Movement  Press Room coordinator, Dler Abdulkhaliq  said that the arrest and detention of journalists during  investigations is against  the press law in the Kurdistan Region, so it is necessary for the courts, the judiciary and security forces to work  in accordance with the laws in force and do not widen the legal obstacles for  journalists in getting  information.

" The Change Movement( Gorran) attaches  importance to the  freedom of  press and establishing  of an appropriate environment  for the work of journalists so that journalists can more easily access information. The movement considers freedom of the press a priority of the movement's policies." He added.

His remarks came after the arrest of Amanj Ahmad, correspondent of Sbeiy website in Soran area and Azad Osmanm director of Dang radio station in Kalar in the past 24 hours.
