Press agencies urged to strictly follow law

The Ministry of Information and Communications on August 19 issued a document requesting press agencies to abide by regulations under the Law on Journalism.

The agencies need to further promote advantages in information work as well as show social responsibility and professional ethics of journalists, says the document.

The ministry will strictly punish press agencies violating legal regulations in press activities and leaders of those where violations exist.

According to Deputy Minister Truong Minh Tuan, over the past time, press agencies have promptly provided information on major criminal cases, contributing to orienting the public opinion, condemning criminal acts and encouraging law enforcement agencies’ fine performance.

However, several newspapers have published inaccurate and sensational information, making a stir among the public, hindering investigations and causing bad effects to society, he added.-VNA
