Georgia’s press freedom index dropped by 9 points

2010-10-21 12:00

Georgia is now 100th in the Press Freedom Index 2010 by Reporters Without Borders. In comparison to 2009 its position dropped by 9 points.


This year Georgia's position is one of the worst over 8 years. The best results were in Shevardnadze's last year of rule - 2003. In 2008 the country found itself in 120th place because of the war in South Ossetia and death of several journalists in it.

According to Elsa Vidal, the RSF representative, many factors influenced Georgia's rating: beatings of Kavkasia journalists by representatives of Orthodox organisations this May, and persecution of the blogger who requested asylum in Europe.

This year Georgia's neighbours in rating are Mozambique [99th] and Armenia [101st] .
