3 May 2024 will mark World Press Freedom Day, a day to honor the crucial role that journalists play in delivering accurate and reliable information to the public, sometimes at the risk of their lives, and to recall the vital importance of press freedom in promoting human rights, good governance and democracy. This day also serves as a reminder that governments around the world need to foster an environment in which press freedom is empowered and protected, enabling independent media and journalists to carry out their crucial role freely, without harassment or fear of retaliation.
