SEAPA is pleased to present these translations into seven Southeast Asian national languages of three core United Nations official documents relating the safety of journalists and the issue of impunity.
Briefly the documents are:
- UN General Assembly Resolution 68/163 on the safety of journalists and the issue of impunity (18 December 2013) -which takes up the issue of impunity as a concern of all member countries deserving action, and declares 2 November as the official commemoration of the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.
- UN Security Council Resolution 2222 (27 May 2015) – which addresses the issue of protection of journalists in armed conflict.
- UN Plan of Action on the safety of journalists and the issue of impunity (CI-12/CONF.202/6, March 2012) – a document endorsed by the heads of all UN agencies which outlines steps that the UN system as well as different actors can take to address the issues of safety of journalists and of impunity.
