Last Tuesday the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) rejected the detainment of journalists in Venezuela and the prohibition of public critics toward the government. IACHR accused them of imposing censor to the media.
IACHR felt sorry for the imprisonment and trial of several journalists of the gazette Sexto Poder (Sixth Power) whose distribution was forbidden on August 20 due to an edited image of six high officials, but it was revoked this week.
The decision to prohibit the distribution of the gazette Sexto Poder made IACHR remind the Venezuelan authorities that the media has freedom of speech, and independency in order to help in the development of a democratic society. (AV)
