Private press requests more cooperation with state institutions

The meeting which took place at the headquarters of the Ministry for Information, Press and Radio, overseen by the Vice-Minister from the department, Virgilio Seriche Riloha, representing the head of the department, Eugenio Nze Obiang, had cooperation between the legislative, executive and judicial institutions as its backdrop.

On Tuesday 20th March, Virgilio Seriche Riloha met representatives from the private written press and heads of press offices at the legislative, executive and judicial institutions at the ministerial department in Malabo II, to analyse and study a more viable system for inter-institutional cooperation.

The issues covered revolved around access to activities and media coverage of events which take place within State institutions, such as the Head of State’s Office, the Judiciary, The Ombudsman’s Office, the Senate, the Chamber of Deputies, and the Vice-Presidencies.

The Vice-Minister told the publications that they would organise a meeting to draw up a working plan regarding the issues they were asking about with the press offices.

Other matters covered at the meeting included the timely notification regarding activities that were to be carried out by the institutions, and the identification via badges of reporters and special envoys from the private media at events and ceremonies, a point about which the Vice-Minister indicated that the private media would have an extension of thirty days to present the corresponding badges to the executive.
