Transparency International has joined the #ProtectJournalists campaign initiated by Reporters Without Borders and supported by a coalition of more than 130 NGOs and media outlets. The campaign calls for the creation of a special representative of the United Nations Secretary General for the Safety of Journalists. José Ugaz, chair of Transparency International said investigative journalism is the “strongest ally corruption fighters have because journalists expose the corrupt. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 252 journalists have been killed in the past 25 years because they reported on corruption.
