 UPDATE 

October 13, 2006

Original Case: September 29, 2006

Les Echos du Nord

CENSORED

The state-controlled National Council on Communications’ (CNC) three-month ban on private weekly Les Echos du Nord over an article critical of government policy expired after the CNC reduced the ban by two months, according to local journalists.

The ruling followed an appeal by the paper’s lawyer and a four-day hunger strike by the paper’s director Désiré Ename.
