[RSF]Reporters Without Borders is alarmed to learn that the Swaziland high court has sentenced Bheki Makhubu, the editor of The Nation magazine, to a fine of 200,000 emalangeni (16,700 euros) or two years in prison, with the jail sentence to take immediate effect if the fine is not paid within three days. The sentence was passed on 17 April after Makhubu was found guilty of contempt of court for criticizing Chief Justice Michael Ramodibedi.
