RFE/RL’s Dushanbe Bureau chief was invited to the Foreign Ministry and then separately to the Ministry of Security. In both institutions, officials had the same message: that RFE/RL is not objective and that it offers a platform to parties and groups that are banned in Tajikistan and labeled as ‘terrorist,’ that we add our own view to stories and that we “hate the government of Tajikistan.” According to the Security Ministry, this conclusion was reached after two weeks of monitoring the Tajik Service’s publications/broadcasts. RFE/RL will continue reporting from Tajikistan based on our professional principles.
