Source text - English The year 2005 was one of the most politically tense in Yemen’s
modern history. In the northern governorate of Sa’ada, fighting
renewed in March between followers of a cleric killed in 2004
by the military and government forces, which view the rebellion
movement as a threat to the country’s overall stability. Tension mounted
in July when demonstrations against sudden gas-price increases turned
violent in several cities, resulting in at least 43 deaths and 500 injuries. The
discord slowed economic growth, worsening poverty and triggering public
anger reflected in increased criticism of the government in the media. The
regime responded to the allegations of corruption and mismanagement with
attacks on the opposition and independent media, moves that members
of the Media Sustainability Index (MSI) panel said contrasted with official
pledges to the international community to strengthen democracy and
allow greater freedoms. Yemeni journalists were stabbed, shot, arrested,
kidnapped, threatened, and prosecuted throughout the year. Court orders
sentenced journalists to jail and closed down newspapers, marking a serious
deterioration in press freedom in the country that was once viewed as an
outpost of democracy in the southern Arabian Peninsula.
Translation - Arabic كان عام 2005 من أكثر الأعوام المشحونة سياسياً فى تاريخ اليمن الحديث. ففى شهر مارس (آذار) تجدد القتال فى المحافظة الشمالية "صعده" بين أتباع أحد الأئمة الذى قتل فى عام 2004 بيد قوات الجيش والحكومة التى تعتبر حركة التمرد تهديد لاستقرار البلاد ككل. تصاعدت حدة التوتر فى شهر يوليو حين تحولت المظاهرات المعترضة على الإرتفاع المفاجئ لأسعار الوقود إلى تظاهرات عنيفة فى عدة مدن مما أدى إلى وقوع ثلاثة وأربعون قتيلاً وخمسمائة جريح. أدى هذا الإضطراب إلى تباطؤ النمو الإقتصادى فازدادت شدة الفقر مما فجر غضباً شعبياً انعكس من خلال النقد المتزايد للحكومة فى وسائل الإعلام. رد النظام على ادعاءات الفساد وسوء الإدارة بهجمات على المعارضة والإعلام المستقل وتحركات يصفها أعضاء هيئة تقدير مؤشر استدامة الإعلام بأنها تتعارض مع التعهدات الرسمية إلى المجتمع الدولى بدعم الديمقراطية والسماح بمساحات أكبر من الحرية. فخلال هذا العام تعرض الصحفيون اليمنيون إلى الطعن واطلاق النار والإعتقال والخطف والتهديد والمحاكمة، كما صدرت أحكام قضائية بحبس صحفيين وإغلاق صحف فى إشارة إلى تراجع كبير لحرية الصحافة فى البلاد التى كانت تعتبر فى يوم ما قاعدة أمامية للديمقراطية فى جنوب شبه الجزيرة العربية.
