RWB concerned about Italian press freedom

Rome, January 30 - Italy has climbed four places in the Reporters Without Borders' (RWB) 2013 World Press Freedom Index compared to last year, but it is still a lowly 54th in the ranking. The French-based NGO said on Monday that the situation in Italy exemplified problems in other parts of Europe. "The situation is unchanged for much of the European Union. Sixteen of its members are still in the top 30. But the European model is unravelling," RWB said. "The bad legislation seen in 2011 continued, especially in Italy (57th, +4), where defamation has yet to be decriminalized and state agencies make dangerous use of gag laws".
