Security Forces Disrupt Journalists’ Demonstration, Injure One

[MFWA]Security forces in Togo on March 14, 2013 prevented a group of journalists from demonstrating in front of the old Presidential Palace in Lome, the capital. The journalists had gathered there to protest against a recent law passed by the country’s Parliament, granting more powers to the media regulatory body to impose sanctions on the media without recourse to the Courts, as was the practice.
