Congo: Congolese private newspaper, Talassa, banned for 4 months

Brazzaville, Congo (PANA) – The Congolese private newspaper, Talassa, has been banned for a period of four months by the Superior Council for the Freedom of Communication (CSLC), PANA reported from Brazzaville.

An official communique issued here Thursday said the newspaper is accused of refusing to play by the rules of the profession, which is considered disrespectful to the CSLC.

This is not the first time Talassa had been banned -- It was in the cooler for two months in 2007 and June 2013, on grounds of deliberate and repeated violations of legal, professional, ethical and other norms that the Congolese media must adhere to.
