Press House – Palestine (BAS) organized a training course on the topic of “Legal Culture for Journalists” as part of “Journalists Have Power” project activities in partnership with the French Consulate in Jerusalem.
With consideration of high prevention measures to prevent the outbreak of COVID19, the training course lasted for three days targeting journalists (women and men) and media graduates.
Dr. Samy Ghonaim, Professor of Criminal Law at Al-Azhar University and the trainer of the course, reviewed the aspects of the course which briefed the general legal concepts and the governing laws related to the media work which define rights, duties, and prohibitions that may face the journalists, such as basic law, publications, cybercrime, and the punishment law. He also indicated that the course aims to deepen the legal culture for journalists (women and men) to make them aware of their rights and responsibilities and to be able to defend them.
