The Inter American Press Association (IAPA) has welcomed precautionary measures issued by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) in favour of journalists with the Kaieteur News in Guyana.The protection requested to the Guyana government is for the newspaper’s Publisher, Glenn Lall, Editor Adam Harris, and senior reporter Leonard Gildarie.The IACHR on November 5 ruled that the lives and personal integrity of the three were in danger after they were threatened for publishing reports of serious wrongdoing by the government.

The action helps to safeguard the journalists,Kevin Bieksa, but more than that it protects the people’s right to receive information of great public interest.”In explaining the basis of its decision the IACHR said that Kaieteur News had published articles of involvement by senior government officials in secret deals, of the sale of public assets and of bribery. However, the last straw was contained in a recording of a telephone conversation between the South American country’s Attorney General, Anil Nandlall,China NFL Jerseys, and Gildarie in which the official threatened the journalist and advised he stop working because his newspaper could suffer the consequences of its publications.Following the paper’s formal complaint to the authorities neither the Attorney General nor the government denied the facts nor was the report investigated or any protection given to the journalists.Claudio Paolillo, Chairman of the IAPA’s Committee on Freedom of the Press and Information and Editor of the Montevideo, Uruguay, weekly Búsqueda, stressed the “great preventive character” of the precautionary measures “necessary in a country and in a continent where there should be more political will and action on the part of governments to investigate murders of journalists and break the vicious circle where violence and impunity are nourished.”The IAPA said its attention to this case is due to a background of violence against this newspaper.

Initially, Government had insisted that it was manipulated.
