On Monday February 27th, 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered “global intelligence” company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal’s Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor’s web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.

Media Feature: Death of Pakistani journalist highlights dangers to media

Media feature by BBC Monitoring on 11 October

The death of another Pakistani journalist has highlighted the dangers the faced by the media.

Journalists in Baluchistan are protesting against the lack of protection for newsmen.

Killing condemned

Faisal Qureshi, web editor of news website The London Post, was found dead at his house in Lahore last week.

Although police have registered a case against unidentified killers, his family says that it was a targeted killing.
Mr Shahid Qureshi, his brother and editor of the UK-based news website, said that his brother was receiving threats from activists of a Karachi-based political party. (The News 8 Oct)

The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists has condemned the killing.
“CPJ is concerned by the emerging details of this case, which is being watched closely by the international community. Given the circumstances, we call for the appointment of an independent committee to investigate
this murder”, said Bob Dietz, CPJ’s Asia program coordinator. “Pakistan has a record of impunity which they must overcome”.

Pakistan was the deadliest country in the world for journalists in 2010, according to CJP data. Pakistan is ranked 10th on CPJ’s global impunity list, which spotlights countries where journalists are regularly killed
and authorities fail to solve the crimes.
