China has remained one of the world’s worst 10 countries for press freedom since press advocacy group ‘Reporters Without Borders’ began publishing its Press Freedom Index in 2002, and this year is no exception.

自從2002年新聞代言團體“記者無疆界組織”開始發佈新聞自由程度指數,中國一直是世界最嚴重侵犯新聞自由的前10名,今年也不例外。

China is ranked 171st out of 178 countries examined for the yearly survey, above North Korea and Burma but below Cuba, Vietnam and Laos.

在年度審查中,中國在178個國家中排名第171,勝過北韓、緬甸,但不及古巴、越南及寮國。

The group’s secretary-general Jean-Francois Julliard said there was little difference between the bottom ten, showing that economic development does not necessarily lead to respect for fundamental rights.

記者無疆界組織祕書長Jean-Francois Julliard表示,最後十名有些許不同,顯示經濟發展必非必然導致對基本權利的尊重。

The report says the Chinese regime still censors and jails reporters, particularly in the far-western provinces of Tibet and Xinjiang.

報告中說,中國政權仍然審查及監禁記者,尤其是西藏及新疆等遠西省份。

Reporters Without Borders calls again for the release of writer and political activist Liu Xiaobo, who was arrested in June last year and sentenced to 11 years in prison.

記者無疆界組織再次呼籲釋放作家及政治運動者劉曉波,他在去年6月被逮捕並且判刑11年。

A Chinese journalist and long-time campaigner for press freedom laws in China, Zan Aizong believes countries without press freedom are trapped in the past.

在中國長期從事新聞自由法社會運動的中國記者昝爱宗)相信,一個沒有新聞自由的國家是受困在過去當中的。

[Zan Aizong, Chinese Journalist for Oceanic Newspaper]:

“If the people of a nation cannot enjoy freedom of speech and freedom of the press, then this society is a closed society, a dictatorship. If only the economy is opened up, that is not a society that has opened up. Both the economy and politics must be opened up, and people’s fundamental rights must be guaranteed.”

昝爱宗說:“如果一個國家的人民不能享受新聞言論自由,那個社會就是一個封閉的社會,一個獨裁政府。如果只是經濟是開放的,不能算是一個開放的社會。經濟及政治兩者皆須開放,人民的基本權力必須受到保證。
