Reporters Without Borders on Petrushova arrest


Reporters Without Borders protested as the repeated harassment of Irina Petrushova, editor of Kazakh opposition weekly Respublika and a Russian national, because of her political stand towards the Kazakh government. She was arrested and held for two days by police in Volokolamsk, 120 kilometres west of Moscow.

"This illegal arrest provides new proof of the Kazakh authorities hounding of one of the rare dissident voices that is still heard in the country," the worldwide press freedom organisation said, adding, "We urge the Russian interior minister to in future take responsibility for the protection of their national to shield her from all harassment whatever form it may take."
