Ecuador: Second case of journalist forced to leave his country due to death threats

"Periodistas Sin Cadenas Foundation informs the public that another journalist of Ecuadorian nationality has left the country in the face of successive threats against his life and the lack of action on the part of the authorities to guarantee his safety.

The victim, whose name will be withheld, has received repeated threats that were brought to the attention of the Attorney General's Office, the Communication Council, the Ministry of the Interior, and the General Secretariat of Communication of the Presidency eight months ago.

However, none of these institutions nor their various authorities have attended to his case in all this time with the relevance it deserves. As a consequence, we must regret his permanent departure from the country."
