CPJ presents report to Supreme Court of Brazil on threats against journalists



The Committee to Protect Journalists submitted a report on threats against the press in Latin American countries to the president of the Supreme Federal Court of Brazil, Joaquim Barbosa, on Wednesday, March 6, reported the Court's website.

Now, the Court has in its hands a report that details why Brazil ranks third on the organization's crimes against journalists impunity index for Latin America.

The report also called attention to the high number of judicial censorship cases against the press in 2012. The Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas recently launched a timeline that lists 16 cases of court-driven censorship in 2012.

CPJ Americas Program Coordinator Carlos Lauría presented the report to Minister Joaquim Barbosa in Brazil.
