Burundi journalist freed

Committee to Protect Journalists: In Burundi, journalist who said president ‘depressed’ is freed on bail

Radio and online journalist Etienne Ndikuriyo was released on bail today after spending more than a week in jail for writing a story about the health of President Domitien Ndayizeye. Criminal charges are pending, and he has been ordered to report to a judge once a week, according to his lawyer, Gabriel Sinarinzi.

“I am very happy to be out of prison,” Ndikuriyo told CPJ in a telephone interview from Bujumbura. “If my colleagues here and all around the world had not supported me so strongly, I don’t think I would be out now.” He said he was in good health and had already returned to work.
