PRICE FOR “YENI MUSAVAT” NEWSPAPER TO INCREASE

January 29th, 2008

Rauf Arifoglu, the chief editor of "Yeni Musavat", told the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety that the price for his newspaper will be raised to 40 gepik, from the current price of 30 gepik.

A decision on this matter has already been adopted, although it is still uncertain when the decision will go into effect. "We can't afford expenses,” said Arifoglu. “We don't have advertisements, but we do have debt. Raising the prices may help us."
