Two radio journalists held for three hours

(RSF/IFEX) - Reporters Without Borders condemns the detention of Radio One editor Karishma Beeharry and Humaira Ali, a member of the privately-owned station's staff, on 14 March 2008 after they broadcast a report that the cabinet would not meet that day because the prime minister was apparently ill. The report was denied. The two journalists were released after being questioned for three hours.

Reporters Without Borders urges the government to act with restraint and says it was absurd and disproportionate to make use of the police in this case.
