Int’l support to TBR continues , June-2008 Edition
Dutch organization Alert Fonds, through Global Human Rights Defence (GHRD) has agreed to extend partial financial support for the publication of The Bhutan Reporter (TBR) for at least one year.

GHRD and Bhutan Media Society (BMS) formally signed a ‘condition paper’ on June 19. The condition paper does not contain any vague point such as censoring the contents of the paper from the sponsors.

Issuing a press statement after the agreement, BMS has expressed gratitude to both organizations Alert Fonds and GHRD for wishing to support the paper in exile. “This support has further added courage on exiled Bhutanese journalists towards their commitment for the dissemination of information to refugee community in Nepal”, reads a statement, adding that the BMS was expecting continued support from the international communities.

GHRD, the Netherlands-based international human rights organization is active in extending all sorts of possible support to exiled Bhutanese since its establishment.
