On the upcoming Tuesday, May 14, the Foreign Ministry will present its response to the report of the Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression, at the same time its part of the annual report of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR).
The answer will be made in the second conference of States, which is part of the American Convention on Human Rights, also known as the Pact of San Jose, which will be held in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
On Tuesday, the Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino said the document would be ready for Monday in order to expose it the next day at the regional meeting, in which the participation of 23 countries is expected.
Patino did not revealed anything regarding the content of the response to the annual report of the IACHR, but regime online newspaper informed last Tuesday some of the criticisms that have been prepared for the rapporteur.
“The government questioned the work done by Catalina Botero the Colombian-leading Rapporteur. The main reason is that its report shows various distortions, which affect the country’s international image and favor powerful media groups and politicians of Ecuador,” said the publication.
The government site also quoted examples of “distortions“, and the three cases contained in the annual report of the IACHR regarding Ecuador: the complaint of Jaime Solorzano by Invermun case, the members of the oversight that the Government set to review the contracts of Fabricio, brother of the Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, with the State, and the report of alleged espionage from Teleamazonas on the Ministry of Labour Relations.
