Yesterday the Constitutional Court received a second lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of several articles of the Communications Law that specifies economic and administrative sanctions for journalists and media.
Around 60 journalists, writers and former assemblymen, offered their support and signatures to this document, which argues that “the restrictions of Communications Law are vaguely defined and combined with highly punitive sanctions, thus creating ideal conditions for media self-censorship.”
Enrique Herreria, the attorney that represents the demand, presented the document to the Court. The company has not set a date for a ruling.
What many hope is that the court applies an injunction and suspends the Communications Law, which is in force since June 25, the pending resolution of the matter of the claim and declare the law unconstitutional.
