An Ecuadorian journalist says police recently raided his home and stole thousands of documents involving alleged corruption by government officials in the latest attempt by the country’s leaders to silence the media.
Investigative journalist Fernando Villavicencio told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview that his house was raided in the middle of the night on Dec. 26 by armed police, prosecutors, and a cameraman. The police confiscated his computer that contained the documents and startled his wife and two young children, he said.
