The United Nations General Assembly in 2013 proclaimed 2 November as the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists, with the date chosen in commemoration of the assassination of two French journalists in Mali on 2 November 2013. IDEI has never been observed in Namibia primarily because of the relatively free environment in which the Namibian media operates but Zoé Titus the Director of the Namibia Media Trust told Future Media News that NMT believes that our country’s number one ranking in Africa in the Reporters Without Borders global Press Freedom Index should not be a reason not to observe this important day.
