Journalists & Actors Syndicates Establish Funeral Coverage Guidelines

The Journalists Syndicate announced its collaboration with Dr. Ashraf Zaki, head of the Actors Syndicate, to discuss necessary rules for organizing media coverage around celebrity funerals, with the hopes of tackling incidents which occur at these gatherings. The Journalists Syndicate urges journalists to halt coverage of funerals and condolences until guidelines are established to protect citizens' privacy and uphold journalists' dignity.

While respecting the feelings of the deceased's families and friends, the Syndicate emphasizes that covering funerals and condolences is a journalistic practice that documents events of public interest and preserves moments for future significance.
