Huaraz provincial official strikes radio journalist for critical question

(IPYS/IFEX) - On 22 June 2007, Radio Miramar radio station journalist Marcelo Sánchez Oliva was assaulted by Huaraz's provincial councillor, Leonor Salazar, when he was attempting to interview her.

According to Sánchez, Salazar struck him in the face when he asked her how she managed to be exempted from the obligation to pay for a licence to construct a building.

The journalist will request protection from the city's government.
