BURKINA FASO: SIGN PETITION FOR ASSASSINATED JOURNALIST NORBERT ZONGO

Ten years ago on 13 December 1998, Norbert Zongo, a journalist from Burkina Faso, was assassinated.

The editor-in-chief of the weekly paper "The Independent" and a staunch press freedom advocate, Zongo had received several death threats after publishing articles critical of the government. There is little doubt that he was killed because of his work, but his murderers remain at large.

Faced with this denial of justice, the Norbert Zongo Press Centre in Ouagadougou is carrying on the struggle to find the murderers and the masterminds. Sign the petition for the reopening of his case at: http://norbertzongo10ans.net or directly at: http://www.lapetition.be/petition.php?petid=3229
