Miami (June 17, 2013)A new communications law enacted in Ecuador represents the most serious setback for freedom of the press and of expression in the recent history of Latin America, the Inter American Press Association (IAPA) declared today.
Miami (June 24, 2013) The Inter American Press Association (IAPA) considers that Ecuadors Communication Organic Law signed into law on Saturday by President Rafael Correa officializes the muzzling of the press through a series of newly established press crimes that place the government above the peoples right to information, a human right established in international treaties.
MIAMI, Florida (September 5, 2013)The Inter American Press Association (IAPA) today publicly called on Ecuadors Constitutional Court to act on a claim of unconstitutionality submitted on Tuesday against the new Communication Organic Law by 60 Ecuadorean citizens, among them artists, former judges, authors, journalists, intellectuals and former legislators. It declared that the law restricts freedom of expression, putting in the governments hands, through agencies and staff appointed by the President, full control of the flow of information.
