3/17/2012 3:11 PM

BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: The Iraq Association for the Defense of Journalists expressed its grave concern for the future of media work in Iraq following the practices against the media organs and journalists, according to a statement.
 
Spokesman Nadhim Ikaili said that the authorities are now demanding legal authorization of field work.
 
He added that a number of TV Satellite teams were prevented from their duties on different occasions for not having such authorizations "which will lead to new controls against the work of the media."
 
Ikaili confirmed the Association's rejection of such practices, calling on specialized commissions in the Iraqi Parliament and Communications Authority to urgently adopt measures that will facilitate journalistic work and its freedom.
