"Members of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) said they were 'impacted' by reports of deepening violations of freedoms of expression and the press and access to information in Brazil, during the pandemic of the novel coronavirus. The cases were presented today, Oct. 6, 2020, by a civil society delegation, including Abraji, during the 177th period of IACHR hearings.

In response to the complaints, representatives of the Bolsonaro government stated that the violence against journalists is 'divergence of opinion' and that measures of social isolation during the pandemic 'hurt the rights' of the population."
