Democratic Republic of Congo – Freedom of the press (January 30, 2017)


We are concerned by the persistent violations of the freedom of the press and the right to information in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

They are notably impacting RFI, whose signal in Kinshasa has been shut down since November 5, 2016.

France again calls on the Congolese authorities to take all necessary measures to allow RFI’s radio signal to be restored as swiftly as possible.
