SFGate.com – Ecuador On Eve Of Control Of Media, Muzzling Of Journalists, Bloggers
This blogger writes about the political climate in Ecuador and the Chevron Ecuador case:
And in March, the Committee To Protect Journalists also reports that President Correa himself filed a defamation complaint against the newspaper El Universo and its three executives and opinion editor. And the result of this complaint could be to land them in jail and have to pay “hefty fines” – specifically three years in jail and $80 million.
Looks like Chevron’s not the only organization Correa’s trying to shake down. He’s doing it to some of his own people.
Referring to Correa as what he’s acting like: a dictator.
