C-LIBRE INVESTIGATES FREE EXPRESSION IN HONDURAS

Free expression and access to information were severely curtailed in a number of ways in Honduras in 2006, says the Committee for Free Expression (El Comité por la Libre Expresión, C-Libre) annual report, according to its partner Probidad, an IFEX member.

The report investigates restrictions on free expression through four themes: the much anticipated Law of Transparency and Access to Information; the harassment of and violence against journalists; the uneasy relationship between new President Manuel Zelaya and the press; and the murder with impunity of a lawyer who defended investigative journalists.
