WJWC: stopping abuses against Iraqi Journalists

Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC) expresses its solidarity with the detained journalists Sarteeb Weisi Qashqai and Ibrahim Ali, and wishes them to be safe, and considers their arrest a violation of press freedom and the right of expression guaranteed by the Iraqi constitution that even obligates the authorities to protect this right.

On 10 October 2022, BWAR News Agency reported, in a statement, that the agency's editor-in-chief Sarteeb Weisi Qashqai and news editor Ibrahim Ali were abducted while on their way to work in downtown Sulaymaniyah, and that their cell phone numbers were closed and therefore there was no way to have access to them.
