All countries like China and Iran are just pretending to be democracy. These countries have a completely dictatorial government. To suppress the voice of the people, the media is also controlled. Something similar was also seen in the Reporters Without Borders (RSF) report on Wednesday (Dec. 14). According to this report, there has been a huge increase in the number of journalists in prison thanks to Iran.

Iran imprisoned journalists

According to the report, the protests in Iran have contributed to the number of imprisoned journalists worldwide rising to a record high of 533 in 2022. According to the French-based NGO, the number will rise above 488 in 2021, which is already a record. Now it has become more because of Iran.

China leads the dictatorship

According to this report, more than half of the world's imprisoned journalists are in just five countries. China leads the way in these countries. Up to 110 journalists are held in prisons in China. This is followed by Myanmar (62), Iran (47), Vietnam (39) and Belarus (31). RSF Secretary General Christophe Deloire said in a statement: "Dictatorships and autocratic governments are filling their prisons faster than ever by jailing journalists."

We must stand against these dishonest governments

"This new record in the number of detained journalists demonstrates the urgent and dire need to counter these unscrupulous governments and expand our active solidarity in the cause of journalistic freedom," said the RSF Secretary General.

Let us know that Iran was not mentioned in last year's report, but because of the protests against Hijab, its name is also mentioned in the report this year.

30% more murders of journalists

The number of killed journalists worldwide has increased by 30 percent this year compared to last year. The report from the Brussels-based International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) says that 67 journalists and media people have been killed so far this year, compared to 47 last year.
