The Alhurra Investigates episode produced by Alhurra on August 31st, was a fair, balanced and professional report on the allegations of corruption in some institutions in Iraq. During the extensive preparations of the report over time, individuals and institutions involved were given the right of reply, which they declined. We still offer those same institutions the opportunity to reply.
Alhurra is committed to fair and professional journalism in Arabic throughout the region. Given the major political, economic and social challenges the region faces, there is a need for greater transparency and honesty, not less.
