76th IAPA General Assembly October 21 - 23, 2020
"It is regrettable that this type of contrived false narratives or undemocratic politicking continues to be used to discredit the media and journalists".
IAPA President María Elvira Domínguez declared, "This is a serious act of violation and another blatant action against the media that bravely report and expose before the citizenry the true face of a regime distanced from tolerance and democracy."
Welcomed the decision of the Colombian Constitutional Court to call private and public players to a hearing on freedom of expression in social media.
Serious and of concern that this decision will create the precedent that the media must ask permission to publish public facts of those affected, "a kind of prior censorship in practice."
Journalists and media excluded from exceptions during the curfew.
"This is a new and dangerous form of discrimination against media according to its editorial principles."
