More than 100 journalists signed on Saturday a petition rejecting the decisions of the Presidential Council regarding the establishment of the Media Foundation and the appointment of Mohammad Bayo to head it.

The journalists confirmed in a statement their rejection from the beginning of these two decisions, which completely contradict the freedom of press.

They also demanded to withdraw the two decisions, in addition to the restoring and building of the Media Foundation, to be governed by a code of honor and regulated by advanced laws that guarantee freedom of expression and facilitate the flow of information.
