Baghdad bureau of Al Jazeera Media Network shut down Iraq Govt, The Iraqi Communications and Media Commission has shut down the Baghdad power of Al Jazeera Media Network and banned its feature writers from reporting in the country.
In a letter to Al Jazeera on Wednesday, the CMC said it was pulling back the grant that allowed Al Jazeera to work in Iraq as a result of “encroachment of the official arrangements of acknowledged tenets and TV rules and controls”.
The framework said it was “dazed and befuddled” by the decision, and ensured to continue with its extent of Iraq for its gathering of spectators there and around the world.
“Al Jazeera is centered around its distribution principles in the extent of current endeavors in Iraq. It submits to its code of ethics in its degree and programming, and by the most astonishing overall benchmarks of cleaned ability, and has been doing thusly since its dispatch,” Al Jazeera said in a declaration.
The framework kept any encroachment from asserting capable news-throwing benchmarks in its news extension and programming.
The commission’s decision “denies the sureties of the Iraqi government to secure the privilege to talk uninhibitedly”, the declaration said.
“The framework assumes that its Baghdad organization can proceed with operations at the soonest opportunity, in the spirit of the press adaptabilities guaranteed by the Iraqi constitution.”
