Urgent Action update: Journalist's hearing adjourned again

For the third time now, the Cabo Delgado Provincial Court postponed the pre-trial hearing of journalist Amade Abubacar scheduled for 27 June due to a clerical error. Amade is awaiting trial for charges of “public incitement of a crime through electronic media”, “incitement” and “injury against public forces officials”. His pre-trial hearing is now set for 25 July.

Take action.
