Commonwealth bodies propose code to protect media
Commonwealth organisations on Wednesday unveiled the 'Commonwealth Principles on Freedom of Expression and the Role of Media in Good Governance', at the Senate House. This 12-point code of conduct aimed at reducing the killing of journalists and other threats to the media’s right to report.
The document reflects international standards and best practices with regard to the relationships between the media and the three branches of government, effective protection for the independence of the media and its role in informing the public, the media’s respect for accuracy and fairness, and promoting member states’ observance of the principles.
