Reporters Without Borders is concerned about the threat of closure hanging over Burundi most popular radio station, privately owned Radio Publique Womens Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Africaine (RPA), because of its coverage of the current political unrest.
Another Burundian radio station, Isanganiro, quoted RPA director Eric Manirakiza as saying his station had just done "its job of providing information" for which the Security Council "should send it a message of congratulation."
"The Security Council statement, singling out a radio station just for doing its job of informing the population, is very disturbing," said Lucie Morillon, head of research and advocacy at Reporters Without Borders.
a statement on 16 March accusing RPA and other media of "sowing fear in the population" and calling on the National Communication Council (CNC), of which new bureau members were appointed last week, to take appropriate measures against RPA, measures that could be severe and could mean closure.
an RPA journalist, and two Radio T Renaissance journalists, Prime Gahinja and Alexandre Bizoza, were beaten by police and ruling party activists in the northwestern province of Cibitoke on 30 August while covering Sinduhije interception by the Nike Air Max Thea Pure Platinum
police while on his way to a meeting with supporters.
RPA has long been a thorn in the government side because it does not hesitate to cover sensitive stories and criticize the ruling party. Its reporting has been subject of reprisals in the past.
After the clashes, the MSD was accused of "insurrection" and was suspended on 14 March for four months, while its president, Alexis Sinduhije, who is facing a possible life sentence on an insurrection charge, went into hiding. His location is still unknown.

He added that RPA "helped Burundians and even foreigners to find out what was really happed in real time and had dispelled rumours" and that "today the rights of citizens can no longer be violated behind closed doors."
The international community has condemned the clashes between police and opposition activists. On 12 March, the European Union expressed concern about the "increase in political tension" while the US State Department deplored the use of excessive force. The next day UN secretary general Ban Ki moon condemned the "growing restrictions on freedom of expression and assembly."
"The accusations of 'destabilizing public order are all the most serious for coming at a time of political unrest and growing repression.
