Television journalist receives death threats following broadcasts on current political situation in Dornod province

(Globe International/IFEX) - At 11:30 p.m. (local time) on 5 April 2007, S. Delger, director of the television channel Shine Suvag in Dornod province, found a letter on her apartment door that read "I will kill you". The following day, insulting, vulgar messages addressed to her were painted on the wall of her apartment building.

Delger has broadcast programmes paid for by the Citizen Courage Party as part of their campaign to impeach the governor of the province. She has also broadcast programmes by the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party and the governor's administration.

Delger informed police about the threats she received. She believes that the threats stem from broadcasts related to the current political situation in the province.

The five-year-old television channel Shine Suvag is the only private station in Dornod province.
