Director-General voices concern over the safety of journalists in the Caucasus


            Paris, 18 September – The Director-General of UNESCO, Koïchiro Matsuura, today once again voiced concern over the safety of journalists in the Caucasus.


“I am deeply shocked,” the Director-General said, “about the all too numerous reports of violent attacks against journalists in the Caucasus. I call on all authorities in the region to do everything they can to improve the safety of media workers.”


The Director-General expressed his concern in reaction to the reports concerning the assassination of Abdullah Alishaev, journalist from the Republic of Dagestan, and the death of Magomed Yevloyev, the owner of an independent news website in the Republic of Ingushetia, both republics of the Russian Federation. “The killings of journalists are crimes against society as a whole”, the Director-General said, “as they deal a blow to freedom of expression and access to independent information for the people of the region. I trust that the investigation launched by the authorities will allow the culprits to be brought to justice.”

            Abdullah Alishaev died on 3 September from wounds sustained when he was shot by unknown assailants the previous evening in Dagestan's provincial capital, Makhachkala. Abdullah Alishaev reported on religious affairs for the local television station TV-Chirkei.


           Magomet Yevloev died after he was detained by the police upon his return to the Republic of Ingushetia from a visit to Moscow on 31 August. Police brought him to hospital where he died from gunshot wounds to the head. Mr Yevloev was a former editor in chief of www.ingushetiya.ru which he founded.
