Al Shyjee: Frustration over Delay of Press Law
The President of the Bahraini Journalist Association (BJA) Isaa
Al Shyjee said that the Association is working hard to establish
a code of conduct for journalists, which was delayed due to differences
of opinion. He also said that the Association has reached a state
of despair because of the continued delay in passing the Press Law
in the House of Representatives. He hopes that the new House of
Representatives will ratify the Press Law and that the journalists
will soon reach an agreement, which will benefit the Bahraini press.
Al Shyjee’s statements were made during a conference held on 24
January 2011, which was organised by the BJA with the coordination
of the International Federation of Journalists.
