Tension

Respect for freedom of information has declined in recent years in Mauritius. Although it is a model African country for democracy and human rights, abuses against journalists continue to be reported. They include threats by the authorities against the daily newspaper L’Express, the 2011 jail sentence of the editor of the weekly Samedi Plus, and the Mauritius Broadcasting Corporation’s warnings to journalists who spoke during public debates.
