Journalist receives intimidating telephone calls for commenting on corruption

(IPYS/IFEX) - On 14 October 2008, journalist Judith Ato denounced having received threatening messages on her cell phone after she made comments on the "Petrogate" case, which revealed the existence of influence trafficking within the government.

Ato is a correspondent for Radio Programas del Perú (RPP) in Piura, northern Perú. She believes the messages may be from a government party supporter who disagrees with the criticisms.
