ISRAEL DENIES WORK VISA EXTENSION TO DUTCH JOURNALIST

MAY 4, 2017

Walters has been forceful in his criticism of Israeli policy vis-à-vis the Palestinians, and it is widely suspected that this is the reason he is being denied the extension.

Less than a week before the opening of the Jerusalem Press Club’s conference on Freedom of the Press in the Digital Era, the international and local media are abuzz with the story of Derk Walters, a Jerusalem-based Dutch journalist, who has been denied an extension of his work visa.

Walters has been reporting for the daily NRC Handelsblad since 2014, covering both Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and was recently informed that he must leave the country in July.
