Radio journalist receives threats after reporting on alleged mismanagement by Nazca mayor's administration

(IPYS/IFEX) - On 23 January 2008, Cadena Sur Noticias radio station journalist Percy Dueñas Luca reported that since 21 January he has received seven threats on his cell phone. The journalist believes the threats may have been motivated by the accusations he made on 21 January about alleged administrative irregularities in the Nazca municipal council, implicating mayor Daniel Mantilla Bendezú. Nazca is a city in Ica, a province in southwestern Peru.

The journalist told IPYS that the caller warned him he would be hurt, but did not specify why. Dueñas will file a report with the authorities.
