Press freedom in Italy deteriorated in 2018 - Strasbourg

Report criticises 'hostile rhetoric' by govt members

Press freedom in Italy deteriorated in 2018 - Strasbourg

Strasbourg, February 12 - Press freedom in Italy "clearly deteriorated" in 2018 according to a report released on Tuesday by the Council of Europe's Platform for the Protection of Journalism and Safety of Journalists. The annual report said that Italy was among the countries with the highest number of alerts posted on the Platform in 2018 - 13, the same as Russia and more than three times the number registered in 2017. It said Italy is also the EU member state with the highest number of active threats on the Platform - 19 - adding that the Italian authorities have not responded to any of the alerts since June 2017. "The growing violence against journalists in Italy is particularly worrying," the report said. "Mafia and organised crime remain one of the biggest threats of journalists". It said the Platform recorded three cases of journalists facing death threats in 2018, while 21 reporters threatened by the mafia live under permanent police protection. Several journalists have been intimidated and attacked by members of neo-fascist groups, it said. The report said most of the alerts were recorded after Premier Giuseppe Conte's 5-Star Movement (M5S)-League coalition government took office in June. It said journalists unions complained of a "constant risk of violence fuelled by the hostile rhetoric of members of the government and the ruling coalition parties". It singled out Deputy Premiers Luigi Di Maio, the M5S chief, and Matteo Salvini, the League leader, for criticism. It said they "regularly express through social media rhetoric particularly hostile to the media and journalists. "Among other things, Deputy Prime Minister Salvini has threatened to remove police protection for investigative journalist Roberto Saviano, despite the known threats to his life from criminal organisations. "Deputy Prime Minister Di Maio has insulted journalists and initiated a policy of abolition of public subsidies to the press".
