Released Wednesday, April 13, 2011
The Foreign Correspondents' Association of Southern Africa strongly condemns the treatment of journalists by the security forces in Swaziland.
Yesterday and today a number of our members, including an FCA board member, were detained, harassed and expelled for merely doing their jobs.
We believe that as a member of SADC, the government of Swaziland has a responsibility to uphold the principles of freedom of the media. We call upon the government of Swaziland to release all journalists detained immediately.
