Reopening of Khuzdar Press Club lauded
ISLAMABAD: The Press Council of Pakistan has welcomed the reopening of Khuzdar Press Club after two-and-a-half months of closure due to security of working journalists. In the face of worsening law and order situation, the PCP has already taken serious note of the safety and security for journalists of Balochistan and has constituted a three-member fact-finding committee to assess the scale of violence against journalist.
“The council has raised the issue of law and order situation and safety of journalists to the officials of the Balochistan government on numerous occasions,” read a press statement issued on Tuesday.
“The PCP is also trying hard to address security fears of working journalists in Punjgor and other sensitive districts of Balochistan, and is having a constant contact with the administration and the Balochistan government in this regard.”
