ISLAMABAD — Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) has condemned the Pakistani authorities' decision to refuse entry to Steven Butler, Asia Program Coordinator of Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) who had landed in Lahore with a valid visa.
In a joint statement, President of PFUJ Afzal Butt and General-Secretary Ayub Khan Sarhindi said that denying entry to Butler is another proof of worsening media freedom in Pakistan.
An official at Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore told Butler that his journalist visa was valid, but his name was on a stop list of the interior ministry.
PFUJ leaders have demanded a probe as to why and who ordered to deny entry to the office-bearer of the top journalist body.
