In June, police arrested Augusto Queba Barbosa, a reporter for the private radio station Bombolom FM in the southwestern town of Bolama, after he broadcast a report accusing a local police officer of violence against a woman, according to Panapress and a local source. Barbosa was accused of broadcasting "false news." He was beaten while in custody and detained for 24 hours before being released without charge, the local source told CPJ.
