Tanzania's Media Services Act Violates Press Freedom - Court

In a judgment on an application filed by three Tanzanian non-governmental organizations, the Arusha-based East African Court of Justice has found that multiple sections of Tanzania's 2016 Media Services Act, including those on sedition, criminal defamation, and false news publication, restrict press freedom and freedom of expression, and thereby breach the constitutive treaty of the East African Community, of which Tanzania is a member.
