Ecuador - Reports
Attacks against the media, journalists and members of the public who were exercising their right to free expression increased, in comparison with the same time period in previous years.
According to the records, most of the aggressions were initiated by public officials; 18.59% of these by the President.
Aggressive legal harassment and intimidation of the news media, led by President Rafael Correa, is weakening free expression, CPJ has found.
