Press group demands protection for journalist threatened by local fisherman in Mexico
The House of Journalists' Rights requested the federal prosecutor protect a Mexican reporter receiving death threats in the southwestern state of Oaxaca, according to a press release from the organization.
In the regional weekly Evidencias, Moreno published a report on leaders profiting from free fuel they received from the state-run oil company, PEMEX, to support local shrimp fishermen in the city of Salina Cruz.
Authorities have so far ignored the journalist's claim with the Attorney General's Office dated Tuesday, Oct. 16, according to the website Tiempo en Línea.
