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.
Please show your support for Nabeel by joining our Thunderclap campaign just in time for his birthday on 1 September, and days before his hearing on 5 September, calling for the immediate and unconditional release of Nabeel, whose health has been severely compromised by the conditions of the arrest and imprisonment.
