Assyria TV:s Special Investigations is the leading Assyrian TV program for investigative journalism. The TV show exposes corruption, abuse of power and systemic failure on all levels of the Assyrian society. The show is devoted to comprehensive journalistic investigations by our team of reporters. It is lead by our editorial board in Stockholm, Sweden.
Each show focuses on one specific case and is accompanied by an article published on Assyria TV:s homepage. The articles contain all facts and pieces of evidence so that our viewers can have a comprehensive overview on each case and examine the evidence themselves.
Our mission is to expose corruption and abuse of power and hold public figures and organisations to account. We give Assyrians the tools they need to take a standpoint in different issues in the Assyrian communities. This requires that we have the confidence of the viewers. This confidence presumes that we are accurate, fair and courageous.
The journalistic work of the Assyria TV editorial board has to comply with the written guidelines adopted by our board of directors. Assyria TV also voluntarily complies with the journalistic principles of the Federation of Swedish Journalists (Svenska Journalistförbundet) as we are mainly based in Sweden.
For the Special Investigations show we have a set of additional guidelines we follow in order to maintain the confidence of our viewers.
