This is indispensable in order toestablish the truth about all the acts of violence that have beentaking place there in recent months.The organization also stresses the primordial role that journalists,both local and foreign, are playing in producing independentlyreported news and information about the events in Syria, especiallythe serious human rights violations. We demand respect for the media’sright to move about the country freely.
