"The Association of Journalists of El Salvador (Apes, for its acronym in Spanish) notified the Attorney General's Office on Jan. 14 of the alleged espionage suffered by journalists and activists in the Central American country and of the hacking of the mobile phone that the union uses to receive complaints from communicators at-risk.

The president of Apes, César Fagoaga, explained to journalists that these two warnings were presented before the Attorney General's Office [of El Salvador] so 'the facts are investigated.'

'We have presented two warnings. What do we expect? That the Prosecutor's Office does its job, that it remembers its constitutional mandate, which is to prosecute crime and investigate,' Fagoaga said."
