Anti-corruption training for journalists

Lalitpur, 19 June – Three day training on anti-corruption for journalists has started in Lalitpur today. The training has been organised for enhancing skills of new and seasoned journalists working in print, broadcast and online media to write investigative news. The organiser has hoped that since many investigative news items are related to corruption, such kind of training on anti-corruption will inform journalists about new norms and dimensions in anti-corruption.

The training conducted under the project Strengthening Citizen Engagement in Anti-corruption Efforts has been organised by Organisation Development Centre (ODC), one of the consortium partners in the project. Development Communication Society-Nepal (SODEC), Centre for Media Freedom (CMF) and Nepal Centre for Contemporary Research (NCCR) are other partners in the project.

Prof. Dr. Rama Krishna Regmee, senior journalist DhrubaHari Adhikary, ex-registrar of the Supreme Court Dr. Ramkrishna Timilsina, former minister and law secretary Madhav Paudel, journalists Binod Dhungel and Om Sharma will train journalists on different issues in corruption control and promotion of governance. Around 15 journalists across the country are participating in the training.
