Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas – Ecuador only Latin American country to make CPJ’s 2013 Risk List

Date: Feb 10, 2014

Ecuador was the only Latin American country to be featured on the Committee to Project Journalists’ annual Risk List, in which the organization highlights countries were press freedoms have been in decline.

Ecuador earned its place on the list after implementing “wide-ranging, vague legislation that gives the government extensive powers to stifle dissent” with the adoption of its new Communications Law, which gives the government broad powers of censorship.
