Journalists' Union: Freedom of Press "Fundamental Principle"

Published måndag 24 augusti 2009 kl 16.42
Agneta Lindblom Hulthén, head of the Journalist Union in Sweden

A disputed article published in a Swedish tabloid has continued to rock the diplomatic boat between Sweden and Israel.

The controversial item was published in daily Aftonbladet last week. Describing Palestinian suspicions of organ harvesting by Israeli soldiers, it has been met with a strong reaction in Israel.

Representatives for the Israeli government have demanded that its Swedish counterpart condemn its contents. But in Sweden this would mean a breach of the constitutional freedom of press, according to the Swedish Journalist's Union.

However, the position regarding the freedom of press, and what it actually entails, differ. Radio Sweden's Rebecca Martin spoke to the head of the Swedish Union of Journalists, Agneta Lindblom Hulthén and with Chaim Shibi, journalist, political commentator and spokesperson for the National Federation of Israel Journalists.
