BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Press Freedom Defence Association announced completing the first amendment to Journalists' Rights Law.
The Association, in a statement, copy received by Aswat al-Iraq, said that a number of legal and journalistic experts put the amendment.
It added it will not submit the first amendment to the parliament only after maturing it by several discussion sessions and workshops.
Iraqi parliament endorsed on 9 August, 2011, the Journalists' Protection Law following hectic discussions that lasted for several years.
On 7 June, 2012, the Legal Journalists' Protection center called for abrogating the Journalists' Rights Law, because it contradicted international accords signed by Iraq, especially Article 19 of the International Declaration of Human Rights and the International Civil and Political Rights Convention.
