IDFI is among the signatories of a letter signed by 36 European and international human rights, media and journalists’ organisations, along with 6 leading experts in freedom of expression and information and human rights. Two years after member states of the Council of Europe committed in Reykjavik on 29 May 2009 to review anti-terror laws for their potential negative impacts on the rights to freedom of expression and access to information. The organisations are calling on the Secretary General to act to ensure that such a review takes place.
We urge other Council of Europe institutions responsible for the freedom of expression and information and for media freedom to support the Secretary General in this work to ensure that these key democratic rights are not compromised by the anti-terror and security agenda.
A review of the current legal framework is essential to verifying this and it is now imperative that such a review be carried out. The signatories to this letter are ready to work with the Secretary General’s office and other Council of Europe institutions to promote this review process by member states.
