The Intern ational Federation of Journalists (IFJ) is alarmed by reports of the continuing detention of Ulaanbaatar Times editor-in-chief Chuluunbaatar Dolgor, who has been in custody since his arrest on March 24.
Journalists describe society to itself. They seek truth. They convey information, ideas and opinions, a privileged role. They search, disclose, record, question, entertain, suggest and remember. They inform citizens and animate democracy. They give a practical form to freedom of expression. Many journalists work in private enterprise, but all have these public responsibilities.
