Homage to Politkovskaya outside Notre Dame in Paris on 15 January, the 100th day after her murder

Reporters Without Borders activists will gather outside Notre Dame cathedral in Paris in homage to slain Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya from 10:30 a.m. on 15 January, the 100th day after her murder on 7 October in Moscow, the press freedom organisation announced today.

“We will meet in the same place where we assembled a few days after her murder to express our grief,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The identity of those who ordered and carried out this murder is still not known. An investigation is under way and we would like to send a message to the Russian authorities. We understand that an investigation takes time, but we want the Kremlin to know that we are watching and we will not let up.”

A poster that has been made to commemorate Politkovskaya will be hung on the base of Charlemagne’s statue. Reporters Without Borders teams will be present until 3 p.m., distributing badges and candles.
