Government fires back at criticism from Obama administration
On 4 May 2012, the Foreign Ministry rejected U.S. President Barack Obama’s reference to threats and harassment of journalists in Ecuador in a speech delivered on 3 May 2012, as well as U.S. State Department Deputy Spokesman Mark Toner’s assertion that
César Ricaurte of Ecuadoran NGO Fundamedios had received death threats for his recent testimony on press freedom in Ecuador before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR). In response, the Foreign Ministry released a statement calling on the
U.S. government to ratify the Inter-American Charter of Human Rights and proceed with the promised closing of the prison at Guantanamo, Cuba.
