MP urges protection of journalists revealing corruption scandals

January 29, 2019

TEHRAN – Mahmoud Sadeqi, a reformist parliamentarian from Tehran, has called for measures to protect civic organizations and also journalists who disclose corruption scandals.

“In the anti-corruption law, improving the health of the administrative system is expected and the Interior Ministry is tasked with supporting the formation of civic organizations,” ILNA on Tuesday quoted Sadeqi as saying.

He added that such support should include judicial support, but “the civic organizations should not wait for such protections because the fight against corruption, like any other fight, needs audacity, courage and readiness to pay the price.”
